iubar project - The First One

This music video documents human intervention into environment. The footage shows the fate of trees and other plants disposed of by human inhabitants of the land. This short film raises questions about our relationship with the natural environment and highlights the beauty of the shapes and forms of trees. This beauty is evident even if the plants have been cut down and are no longer alive.

The location of the shoot was Daylesford, a small town that is a significant tourist attraction in the state of Victoria in Australia. However, the film showcases a small, personal fragment of Daylesford, which is on private land and not visited by tourists.

This video is the first in the series of a dozen of short films featuring the music from iubar project's upcoming concept album 'Survival Tactics'. This series of music and videos will focus on the environmental and social issues on Earth as well as the concept of space travel to Mars.

The video was shot and edited entirely on iPad Pro (iPad 7,4) with LumaFusion software.
