Steven Briand's short music video captures the earth-shattering intensity of a first kiss, when time stops and the world disappears.

As lovers embrace on a bridge, the world falls away, and the two are alone in the clouds. A single breath in time, Plume is almost a promo-lite - one idea expressed neatly and dynamically, like a painting that drifts away from you. 

Briand is Partizan's resident VFX/stop-motion whizz in Paris, and his choices give this video a gentle weightlessness that transcends its stone inspiration, Rodin's sculpture Le Baiser.
