Production Company: Black Dog Films
Director: Houmam Abdallah
Houmam Abdallah is one of London’s most prolific colourists, but he’s also been garnering attention for his forays into directing for a while now, particularly with his videos for Beirut’s The Rip Tide and The War On Drugs’ Under The Pressure. Now comes Houmam’s latest outing as director, for 2 Pyramids by Oklahoma five-piece Other Lives. It’s yet another testament to his burgeoning directorial skill.
The gorgeiously visual promo clearly demonstrates Houmam’s background in colour, through a highly saturated and dazzlingly ornamented dance performance set against a hyperreal, otherwordly background.
