Today BEYRIES announces a beautiful cinematic video collaboration with photographer (and first time music video director) Shayne Laverdière for her song Same Light. They filmed the video by mounting a russian arm (a flexible, stable camera system) onto the roof of a mobile platform to capture fast-moving images. The results are extremely powerful, just like the the breathless song that accompanies them. What I like about this concept is the hope and positive feeling that can linger after viewing it, explains the photographer. Well-known director of photography André Turpin, and actors Laurence Leboeuf and Pierre-Yves Cardinal also worked on the Metafilm-produced video.
Watch and share the video for Same Light via YouTube.
Shayne Laverdière's CV speaks for itself - he’s a photographer who has an ongoing creative partnership with Xavier Dolan, and who works with leading magazine publications, fashion brands and celebrities. Over the last three years, he has led campaigns for international brands such as Louis Vuitton and Marco Polo. His work has been published in some of the world’s most reputable magazines, including American Vogue, L’UOMO Vogue and Vanity Fair.
This spring, BEYRIES will be touring France, England, Germany and Istanbul, Turkey. Her album Landing just celebrated its first year anniversary and she’s performed over 75 shows, most of which have been sold out. She’ll be playing next in Toronto at the Drake Hotel on April 6. All her tour dates are HERE.
The singer-songwriter is currently working on an EP of a collection of her french songs, including a cover of a very well-respect Quebec artist’s song. Stay tune for more details.
