Tom Misch ft. Loyle Carner 'Water Baby' by Georgia Hudson
Georgia Hudson's beautifully-crafted video for Tom Misch combines a spectacular winter landscape with urban cool, knitted together by an element of subtle magic.
While a dancer performs on an ice-covered lake, rapper Loyle Carner delivers his performance in a house in London. But Tom Misch is elsewhere - performing the soulful jam Water Baby from under the ice.
Shot in the Ukraine and London, Hudson has harnessed great work on both sides of the camera to achieve an exquisite music video.
"I thought that Water Baby wanted to be something poetic and subtly surreal, that gave time to the lyrics and felt like a good flowing piece of liquid like restraint. The track has a kind of honest simplicity. It also has a proper classic groove to it. So I wanted to go in with some old school, simple, stripped-back dancing to match. I saw the video immediately when I heard it, that first shot of a person dancing from a frozen sky, lucidly tripping at moonlight. I’m a sucker for a beautiful image.
"We shot this between twin souls, Peckham and Ukraine, with an incredibly resourceful crew who really managed to push what we had to achieve the most.
"Luke Moran Morris on Art, did a whole load of really charming fish tank tests to interrogate how effectively, and affordably, we could create a frozen lake to film Tom underneath. Reason being Ukraine was -10C and that’s literally a nightmare to do for real, although I have to say I’m not sure how pleasant it was for Tom anyway. He was resilient. Being trapped under a huge sheet of fake ice in a tank, is no-one's ideal.
"On Camera we had Ben Fordesman who brought an apt sensitivity and richness to every moment of the image, he has a level of craft that reads effortlessly... I guess the touch in a DP for me is when there’s enough space left on either side of the logistics or the technical to get an image holding a feeling. That’s what’s special with his work.
"Big love to Hayley, Freddy and Emma, my producers who got this off the ground and up into the sky. It was no mean feat... but it was really fun. Thanks to Stitch for the edit and the Mill for polishing it off so subtly. Thanks to everyone who did us a favour, because there where quite a few…"
