Billie Marten takes an intrepid journey through wintry English countryside, in Joe Wheatley's haunting video for Creature Of Mine. 

Taking place somewhere between a conscious and unconscious world, we see the artist traverse a forest and jump into a small boat, sailing towards an unusual, bright green glow in the distance. But is it just a hallucinatory vision?

Wheatley achieves a dreamlike atmosphere with echoes of Picnic At Hanging Rock - despite the difference in location and climate - with a combination of Billie's purposeful journey through woods and lake, her vintage costume and the cinematography by Isaac Eastgate, shooting on 35mm. 

“Joe and I wanted this video to represent that needless search for something other than what you have." Marten says of the video. "Something intangible and elusive, something also quite beautiful and abstract to pair with the song – an inconclusively painted picture.”
