We shot the video in Manchester, using R&B go-go dancers, Beyonce’s ‘Dance 4 U’ music video, and 90’s streetwear fashion, as reference points for the choreography, minimalist set design and silhouette visual shots along the way, and I think we created a great movement piece to bring ‘Wrap’ further to life”.
