Textures and colors are the essential elements of the video Favorite Place, for a powerful and melodic song by the US band Black Books. The aim was to create an energetic, fun and at the same time warm and intimate music video to illustrate the track. Cloth is very symbolic, warm, personal, and of course colorful, so, I chose to explore the world of sewing and play with material and tools.
Some very special thanks to Bragard and Nicolas Boileau for the sewing material and their huge kindness.
