The Actor, Alt-J, 2022
Production design, music video





The track is about the story of a young actor attempting to make it in LA and ultimately failing. Saskia took the idea further by proposing a 'posthumous Pas de Deux' between the actor and their lover focusing on the presence of tragedy in film. A simple yet powerful 2 shot on actors and acting.

The film is entirely choreographed and references Romeo and Juliet’s famous Pas de deux ballet, but centers more upon the work of DV8.
It plays with the male actor archetype, whilst simultaneously presenting a character study of the Heroine. The spectators witness the scene unfold.
