Rival Consoles - Hidden [Video]

Rival Consoles have released a new video today for the track Hidden, taken from the album Persona. Really beautiful light and dark images with some amazing projections and archive BBC monitors.


“This film was quite a journey to creation,” says director Dan Medhurst. “After shooting a live performance of Ryan, we fed those shots through a series of old BBC editing monitors and projectors. We filmed more layers and introduced textures and distortion with some fresnel lenses. This gave us a different dynamic and really added some warmth to the film. Through this process of sending the video from digital to analogue signal, and then back again, we created a rich blend of abstract visuals that changed and morphed into something entirely new by the end.”
