I was recently commissioned by Griffith University and moregoldcoast.com to create a live music video and a short documentary style video portrait on a Gold Coast musician by the name of Aquila Young. For the documentary the brief was to make a creative portrait of Aquila that captures her essence as an artist whilst also showcasing the Gold Coast as a unique tourist destination. Aquila and I chose to run with the theme of light and dark which is a theme that runs through all Aquila Young's music. To showcase the Gold Coast in a way that wasn't cliched I decided to film at iconic Gold Coast locations but at unusual times so that these spaces commonly used to promote the Gold Coast can be seen in a different light. To capture the theme of light and dark I decided to film in black and white and use high contrast light and shadow to visually tell Aquila's story. With the live video the only guideline was that it had to be filmed in an iconic Gold Coast location so we chose the Gold Coast Arts Centre. Both projects were a lot of fun to work on and it was a great experience capturing Aquila in such beautiful settings. I have included both videos below along with a few 35mm film photos I shot during the filming. VIDEO PORTRAIT AQUILA YOUNG - LIGHT AND DARK from Danny McShane on Vimeo.
