PIXX - 'BABOO' - (2016)
Format: S16mm (Kodak) / DCP
Director: James Slater
This music video for the PIXX track 'Baboo' encompasses a naturalistic, yet at times psychedelic approach to its imagery. By combining high-contrast, low-key lighting with some wonderfully rich and saturated stage and costume design by Natasha Lawes, the finished piece manages to integrate a paganistic spirit to the final piece.
Originated on Kodak 500T on the Bolex H16, the film was shot spherically for a final aspect ratio of 1:66:1. The negative was over-exposed by two stops, and pull-processed one, in order to give a lower-contrast, pastel look to the imagery.
Film processing was provided by iDailies (London).
