Louis Tomlinson 'Two Of Us' by Huse Monfaradi
Huse Monfaradi returns to music videos with a well-judged showcase for Louis Tomlinson's Two Of Us.
It's a straightforward performance video, captured at Crouch End Town Hall, and shot in black and white by Olly Wiggins, which allows Tomlinson's heartfelt message of love for his late mother to come through loud and clear.
"Louis was keen for it to not feel too sad and have more a more energetic and uplifting positive message."
"For this video, Louis wanted to show a different side to himself involving musicianship and performing with a band, something that he hadn’t really done before. The song was deeply personal to Louis as it’s about his mother passing away a couple of years ago at a very young age. Nevertheless he was keen for it to not feel too sad and have more a more energetic and uplifting positive message, and I think tonally we got that just right.
"The location I chose was the old town hall in Crouch End which had loads of interesting, different rooms and spaces – including the semi-derelict main hall, where interestingly Queen first ever performed back in the 70s.
"We shot anamorphic black and white, beautifully lit by Olly Wiggins. I didn’t want to go for anything over-stylised and just let the pictures and Louis performance speak for itself, and I feel Olly really managed to translate that onto screen."
