A Dublin-based director is working on an exciting music video, which will tell the story of 2 women (both aged 18-25); one is a dancer and the other is a fighter (MMA). We’ll see them in a dancehall and in a gym, both of them practicing. We are going to be looking for and creating the parallels between the two activities through the images and the editing. As the song and the video progress, we’ll begin to see the two reacting to and in parallel with one another’s movements, even though they aren’t physically in the same room (e.g. our fighter will throw a right handed jab and our dancer will pull her head to the left). A full visual treatment can be viewed here.
The song is a trad-irish tune composed and performed by a young trad group. They are releasing their 3rd album and they wanted to create a video that offers something fresh and reflective of their generation. The approach is to provide something unexpected in the context of traditional irish music and would stand out as something that connects with a younger audience.
