City Pop

City Pop draws inspiration from the Glam rock era and Technicolor cinema to transport us into a world of magic and reinforce the idea that everything is possible, to show the beauty of our wild imagination, of the child-like amazement and firm belief in wonders that we keep as we grow up.

Director Statement

'City Pop' was inspired by the music of Cameron Wight. Filmed in one day with a 3 person crew, the video aims to show that there are no limitations to our dreams and that everything we imagine we can do. In a time of lockdown, full of restrictions and limitations, I wanted to create something that would make people happy and inspire them to dream and keep their childhood curiosity.
