A young man struggles to cope with the loss of a loved one, in the video for I'll Survive. 

Co-directed by Ricky Williams and artist Lewis Knaggs, the video follows a trippy series of events as the line between fiction and reality is blurred, and old memories burn through to the surface. 

DoP Guido Cavacuiti creates a low contrast aesthetic to reflect the hopelessness of the concept, and uses atypical composition to elevate the surreality of the world inside the character's head.
