Director Statement

For this music video, I chose to create a western. I was inspired by the music composed by Quentin Gendrot, a founding member of Qlay. When I was listening to music, I first visualized images from western movies. I think it was because of its rhythm and instruments, mostly the guitar.
The story I originally wanted to tell was a common revenge movie. But after some discussions with Quentin Gendrot, we modified the script in order to better suit his personal universe. That’s why I chose to introduce the idea of dreams. Then the concept of loop came into my mind. I could repeat the end of the main character, showing her death in different scenarios, to reinforce the idea that violence does not solve the problems.
I have been really inspired by the movies of Sergio Leone, mostly for his aesthetics, the beautiful images and the way he shoots.
That’s why I chose not to use a hand-held camera. In order to transpose the western universe, I chose to have a sharp contrast between the highlights and the shadows and to saturate the color palette. In France (Nouvelle Aquitaine), we don’t have deserts, so I shot on the beach and used the colors to create the illusion of a desert. There are two important reasons why I wanted to create such a project. The first reason is that this kind of project was a challenge, and I wanted to work on a project that would be difficult before graduating. The second reason is that western stories are not part of French history, so we don’t have a lot of movies or music videos like this in France.
