A journey of self discovery helps repair a fractured relationship in Bjorn Franklin and Johnny Marchetta's video for Gabrielle Aplin and Nina Nesbitt's team up on Miss You 2. 

Filmed with handheld cameras and anamorphic lenses - this was also shot by Marchetta - the gritty visual mirrors the raw emotion of the track, as the two characters are slowly overcome by loneliness and a yearning for each other's company.

Both Gabrielle and Nina play key roles, essentially acting out each actors' conscience throughout the narrative. Their energy is magnetic, faithfully representing the highs and lows of being in a relationship, and channeling the disjointed emotions through their performance. 

The high contrast lighting and juxtaposition of certain colours helps to effectively communicate the turbulent state of the couples' relationship. In certain scenes, the clash of colour and texture is almost uncomfortable, suggesting the experience of being out of place, and these visual hints are a clever way of peeling back the layers of our main characters and showcasing their true motivations.
