SAM JONES Spins us Round with MUMFORD AND SONS

09.07.2013 - Posted by : Black Dog Films

Director Sam Jones has captured the intensity of a Mumford and Sons performance with the release of an artful black and white video for the hit album’s title track “Babel.”

The Black Dog Films director uses the camera lens as a perpetual panning machine, documenting intermittent glimpses of the folk-bluegrass band as they passionately plays their instruments in a once-magnificent San Francisco hall.  Against the now-dilapidated grand room, viewers witness band members reappear at one end of the incoming shot as their past incarnation fades out of frame.  With steady, well-timed movement of the camera and skillful post production, Jones and the band give us a whirlwind performance.
