Orlando Weeks 'Big Skies Silly Faces' by Rik Burnell
Rik Burnell directs a dreamy and uplifting promo for former Macabees frontman Orlando Weeks.
Backdropped by a prominent blue sky and fluffy clouds, we see Weeks defy gravity in a string of "boomerang" style shots. Glitching back and forth through repetivite bouncy movements, the visuals transcend the stripped-back concept, to create something nostalgic and absorbing.
Simple, peaceful, mesmerising - with a guest appearance by Katy J Pearson who also sings on the track - it's sure to gently spread happiness.
"The video's journey started with Orlando describing the record as hopeful, positive and something that savours and cultivates joyful things,' explains Burnell. "We very much wanted to indulge in and extend these sentiments, to create something light and charming.
"We played with performance tropes, nostalgia, a trampoline and some crash matts and somehow managed to get a 'boomerang' in the edit that still makes me smile having seen it a thousand times."
