Chløë Black '27 Club' by Calum Macdiarmid
Shot in a burnt-out house in London and driven by Ian Murray's excellent photography, Great Guns director Calum Macdiarmid ofers up a stylish film-noir piece to brilliantly compliment Chløë Black's haunting and dramatic 27 Club.
Boasting a bold and intense look throughout and brilliantly styled, Calum's promo gets increasingly darker and grittier as Chløë delivers an alluring performance...
“The 27 Club video was inspired by my obsessions with vintage wet plate photography and the visual aesthetics of French New Wave cinema.
"I wanted to create a film that was all about bold compositions and manipulation of shadows, so shooting in black and white felt like the most natural fit.
“Chloe was a total gift. She was so committed to the concept from the get go. Even the pigs’ brains and ants didn’t seem to phase her. Which was lucky given that the ants didn’t always behave themselves, scuttling away, trying to avoid the light, as soon as we put them on Chloe. They weren’t shy about reappearing all over us long after shooting had wrapped though.”
