Rob Ulitski - 10th June 2021

Nayana IZ ponders on identity and relationships, in Liam S. Gleeson's introspective promo for Breaking Point. 

Beginning as an ode to her boyfriend, the story of the track shifted during writing, as the artist reconciled her existence as a British-Asian woman with her past self.

The video uses abstract reflections and suggestions of a doppelganger to match the themes of the concept, as Nayana IZ overcomes past traumas, eventually becoming comfortable in her own skin. 

Piecing together intimately shot portraits with an absorbing narrative, DoP James Moriarty's cinematography feels raw, real and human, switching up textures and colour palettes to represent the multiple threads of the artist's story and personality.
