Jon Hopkins "Singularity"

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Music Videos / Direction / 2019

Jon and I have been friends and collaborators for 15 years, but this was the first music video we’ve done. Singularity is an incredible track, its merciless intensity somehow reflects our troubled times, it lulls us into a false sense of security, then blindsides with devastating force. I wanted to capture the feeling of defiance that rises from this onslaught. The track is ultimately about acceptance and finding peace in nature. The video was shot in Belgrade in sub-zero conditions. The shoot was very challenging, but the crew & dancers gave everything. Their heart & soul is on screen.
