The Late David Turpin | Love Shrine (feat. Xona)

My new video for Irish artist David Turpin. Shot last year in Dublin.

Concept: David Turpin | Dir/Ed: Gareth Stack | DOP: Siobhán T. Rose Madden | Prod: James Galvin | BTS: Anthony Kinsella Feat: Xona, Lorcan, Dmitry, Michal, Pablo, David, Emerson and Bonnie Take from the album ROMANCES.

Directed this last year for Irish artist David Turpin. It’s from an album called Romances, featuring his songs performed by a variety of Irish artists, in this case Jordan from the band XOMO.

The idea for the video was a kind of audition / tarot reading before a pair of jaded libertines. Visually we tried to create the feeling of a Robert Mapplethorpe photograph, or some of the effects pioneered by John Maybury in his biopic of Frances Bacon, ‘Love is the Devil’. This combined in camera effects with a good amount of post grading, like chromatic aberation and depth of field effects. Using Davinci, Film Convert and Red Giant Universe.
