Our countdown of some of the most impressive submissions for Soul Clap / Wolf + Lamb’s ‘Lonely C’ video contest continues with a visually stunning and emotionally stirring piece from Nils Clauss& Neil Dowling from CONTENTed Films. Shot on location in Korea, the clip is a beautiful meditation on longing. Read a full description from the directors below the video.
CONTENTed FILMS is NEIL DOWLING, an Irish writer and director and NILS CLAUSS a German cinematographer & director with a background in photography and graphic design.
The video shoot took place on a small farm in Jeollabuk-do province, South Korea in February 2011. The storyline was conceived in response to the song lyrics which tell of an unrequited love or a longing that can’t be satisfied or consummated. We came up with the concept of a brother and sister who are twins who have grown up lived and worked together on their parents’ small farm. They are confused and disturbed by the fact that their closeness has developed into a kind of sexual longing that they know they must hide away deep inside.
The video was executed by CONTENTed FILMS as a two man project, shot on location with a cast of solely non-professional actors. Thanks so much to the Kim family for their hospitality and their participation, not to mention their patience.
CONTENTed FILMS are open to interesting new projects, especially for clients who would be interested in Asian visuals or themes for music videos, commercials or other projects.
