Exec-produced and directed this live-stream from the Fonda, live to YouTube, to launch Nick's new release, "Push The Sky Away".
We worked closely with Nick's creative director's, Iain & Jane, who were incredible. They came up with the idea of switching from black-and-white to colour mid-set. Nick played the new record front-to-back for the first half of the set, and then went into a blinding back-catalogue second-half of set. And on the first note of the first song of the second half, we switched from black-and-white to full colour in the OB. Looking back on twitter it was great to see people responding to something in real time.
We made extensive use of the jib shot in this show, but kept it long, slow, smooth, and slightly uneasily floating... matching up tension in the music to tension in the cuts - letting the stage do the talking.
Also, Warren Ellis is an absolute legend.
