Shot across both Easdale and the Isle of Mull, Scotland, our Autumn/Winter campaign was captured on film by Samuel Bradley, with styling by Stephen Mann and soundtrack provided by Mount Kimbie. The vast, open landscape of the coastal islands expresses a sense of freedom and tranquillity. Shot in both colour and black and white, our feature film is a natural progression from a single image. Adding a third dimension, the subtle use of music from Mount Kimbie brings emotion to the landscape while the freedom and serenity captured are momentarily interrupted by a Gaelic choir singing.
“The final film is split into what feels like three distinct chapters, bookended by a live recording of the choir on Mull. They hadn’t performed together for a year but the second they began rehearsing I had goosebumps. The actual recording was the last take of the day where I asked them to sing as they walked a path through the grass in front of Duart Castle, out towards the sea.” – Samuel Bradley
“They’re passing the microphone one by one in a single file so the dynamics aren’t necessarily ‘correct’ from a sound recordist’s standpoint. But it’s this movement, I think, which makes the sound warm and tangible.” – Samuel Bradley
