Episode 003 - Sessa

I was invited to create the third episode of Cactus Club Series. I had the freedom to choose the aesthetic and content.

The video was drawn from Sessa's intimate performance. Based on the lyrics and the energy of the show I created the dark bokeh aesthetic and used it throughout my editing, overlaying b-roll and perfomance. The interview was done via WhatsApp and, therefore, used only as voice over. 

The performance was captured by 1 still camera, 1 handheld camera, 1 boom microphone and a zoom recorder. All work was done by me, including the translation.
