Rob Ulitski - 23rd Nov 2021

In his second video for DJ/producer prxz, following Child In Red, Milo Blake directs a poetic re-interpretation of the Grim Reaper shepherding a lost soul from limbo, in his promo for Girl. 

Shot entirely in a six minute continuous take, this one-shot film follows this version of the Reaper as she moves through an abandoned aftermath and interacts with the Soul.

The abstract interpretation of the concept creates an aura of mystery which heightens the drama of the piece - with a great use of the East London location and in particular a giant electric pylon tower that straddles the road, its frame picked out in Adam Singodia's black and white cinematography.

The excellent central performances by Emma Aldija as the Reaper and Maddie Millar as the Soul are also noteworthy, keeping viewers engaged with hypnotic, otherworldly movement and spontaneous choreography, captured by Steadicam operator Mike Vega.
