Jade Cuttle and I headed out to West Cambridge to do a photoshoot in my old neighbourhood for her new song ‘Leaves and Lovers’. The song considers heart break through the prism of trees, comparing a tree that has lost its leaves and is haunted by the memory of its warmth, to humans and lost lovers. There is a forested strip of land that connects a bike path in West Cambridge to some fields, which worked great as a location for our shoot. We filmed a lot of little sequences there, as well as some longer parts with Jade singing her song. Back in Sweden I spent a few evenings editing, and here is the final result, have a listen!
This was all shot handheld. Here is a youtube video with some great tips for how to get your handheld films more stable. I also took a few still images while we did the filming.
