This was part of a submission for tender in a bid to produce the branding, design work, printing, photography (Alex Telfer) and a TV advert (I would've directed) for the Orkney Islands Tourism 2014 through the agency I did placement with; Precept
I own no rights to this footage as it is simply an edit to show what our visual ideas were and this was used to convey them to the client.
Opening shots are from Oliver Hegartys Bon Iver music videos set in Ireland:
Unfortunately we didn't win the tender but the liked the idea of the video. I hope a rip off version doesn't appear in cinemas someday!
All creative direction in this video was undertaken by myself after some research into Orkney culture and history. I took this project very personally as the islands hit close to home in visual style and culture for me.
