The song was released eight years ago but is experiencing a second youth thanks to the posting of its clip this week. The American group Imagine Dragons has published the clip of "Nothing left to say" on social networks, directed by a Toulousain, Patrick Foch.
In less than a week, the video had nearly 2.5 million views on YouTube. The consecration for this artistic short film, which tells the life of a couple who tears apart and then finds themselves in a sublime dance in the water and the air.
It was the independent director, supported by the studio Master Films, who submitted this original idea to the famous American rock group. Their manager accepted this funny creation, giving them carte blanche. Patrick Foch had been developing the idea for this video for several years, which is more like an artistic work than a music video.
“I had this hybrid idea around dancing underwater which removes gravity and movement on the ground, says the professional. I wanted to dance underwater but not synchronized swimming. The dancers had to work in snorkeling but it paid off because the slightest gesture is beautiful, graceful ”.
System D for aquatic scenes
The shooting was done in a week and the aquatic scenes shot at the Nakache swimming pool in Toulouse. The two dancers' legs were weighted with lead so that they could move to the bottom of the water. Tricks like installing a mirror to reflect the light from the two projectors give an incredible rendering to the clip.
