The penultimate track on Young Wonder’s album Birth is also the title song, and Brendan Canty aka Feel Good Lost made a video for it, when inspiration struck one night.
It’s a pretty special video for me as I haven’t done something abstract and experimental in a long while. So it was refreshing to make.
One night a repair truck was parked across the road from my house. It’s amber lights were so strong that they lit up my room, dancing across my walls. I noticed a glass of water on my window sill and how the water warped the lights into weird and beautiful shapes. So I decided to film this straight for 6 minutes, challenging myself to find as many interesting angles as I could. I loved how the footage turned out and wanted to create a video made entirely from that one shot.
