13.09.2015: "ANJA SKYBAKMOEN / ECHO" - Music Video Grading

This music video is the most adorable film I have seen in a long time.
Anja Skybakmoen´s powerful song is about being special, going your own way and creating YOUR identity.
Director Aurora Gossé´s creative vision backs this theme well.

Gossé has got a great sense of storytelling, which is easy to sense when seeing her work.
Her graduation film from the National Film School, "Vi ser i mørket", was shortlisted for this years Student Academy Award.

The video follows a young girl that attends a birthday party. Everyone is in fancy dress.
Our hero sticks out like a sore thumb and hasn't conformed to what her peers view as an appropriate costume.

Cinematographer Åsmund Hasli´s imagery was nice and creamy, yet rich in texture. I was really pleased to work with him again.

I created a number of different looks for the director and cinematographer based on discussions we had in session, this collaboration ended up in a low-contrast filmic look.
There are several different scenes in the video, each of which need their own special touch to emphasize the flow of the story.
We were all pleased with the result.

I hope this music video warms your heart as much as it did mine.

Check it out!
