Wesley Joseph 'Ultramarine' by Wesley Joseph
Wesley Joseph invites us to explore feelings of incapability and infatuation in the self-directed video for Ultramarine.
It’s a full blood moon, and Federick (Wesley’s alter ego, a self-confessed insomniac) is late to a wedding party, soon finding himself staring down the barrel of a golden baby magnum.
With a focus on chasing what could harm him the most, we are presented with an evening of trippy eccentricity, fear and funk.
Embracing a hypnotic red and blue colour palette and an electrifying sense of danger in every frame, the visual uses distorted POV shots and effects to create a darkly atmospheric aesthetic.
The concept is a whirlwind of emotion and metaphor, and the cinematic qualities are notably enhanced by DoP Alfred Thirolle's masterful use of saturated colour and experimental camerawork.
