Fantastical and deeply immersive, GOLDEN LIGHT asks you to simply go along with the symbolic wonderland it throws at you. A three minute Italian music video exploring metaphor, symbolism and vivid contrast, GOLDEN LIGHT employs colour and contrast to create dramatic emotional responses. We follow our hero as she explores a mystical Alice-In-Wonderland style universe, encountering her lover along the way.

Under the right light, dramatic patterns appears on the faces of our heroes, adding a literal secondary layer of meaning to our piece. Our lovers dance around each other, one holding a key, one revealing a key hole- but neither ever truly reaching the other.

A notably nod must be given to the stunning and unique art direction and design in this piece- as it has a sensual other-worldliness that is all at once engaging, intriguing and uncanny. This is a difficult but nevertheless effective tone to keep the viewers glued to the piece until the final frame. A lush visual piece with densely layered visuals, GOLDEN LIGHT is a beautiful film to see.
