Rob Ulitski - 11th Jan 2021

Raja Virdi directs his fifth music promo for Passenger, this time a performance-led piece in the Scottish Highlands, for the wistful track Sword From The Stone.  

The video opens with Michael David Rosenberg - aka Passenger - in a stark, claustrophobic interior, before transitioning to the spectacular landscapes of the Highlands. 

Exuding a sense of freedom and escapism, the video was shot over two and a half days in September, combining drone footage and handheld work by DoP Pieter Snyman. Virdi's regular colourist Connor Coolbear adds a final layer of polish, with his dramatic yet considered grade.
