SIRENS - MUSIC VIDEO
METAXAS - SIRENS - MUSIC VIDEO
When Savvas Stavrou, the director of 'Sirens', approached Blindeye Films with this ambitious idea, we threw everything at it to make sure the films full potential was realised. Shot on the beautiful beach of Hengistbury Head in Bournemouth an amazing set of crew collaborated to create a stunning music video.
"Sirens by Metaxas is an ode to faith and love above all obstacles. It alludes to life as a siren's call with all its temptations, yet speaks about remaining faithful despite these distractions. We shot on a secluded beach with limited resources, rehearsing the action for the entire day before hitting magic hour. I mapped out the emotional beats of the song, and by carefully calculating where these would land in reverse, we were able to capture and build on them in the actual take. I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to help me achieve this.
"For me it is a song of both hope and despair, and I wanted to capture this double-sided emotion by reversing a single take, giving it double meaning through a cyclical narrative. My aim was to convey the power of time, memory and acceptance, and to give a voice to an underrepresented side of the LGBT community.
"It is an important subject matter that requires more awareness, as the current LGBT climate focuses more on the youthful side of the Trans world and forgets the people who passed on the baton all these years."
