Seb Edwards’ Jon Hopkins Promo is a Gritty Reflection of Today



Academy Films director helms a feast of choreography for the electronic musician

Seb Edwards’ Jon Hopkins Promo is a Gritty Reflection of Today
Academy’s Seb Edwards has directed the music promo for Jon Hopkins’ ‘Singularity’. 

“I’ve always loved Jon’s work and we've been wanting to collaborate for a while,” says Seb. “Singularity is such an incredible track, its merciless intensity somehow reflects our troubled times. I wanted to capture the feeling of defiance that rises from the initial brutality. The track is ultimately about acceptance and finding peace in nature. I hope I did it justice.”

The film was DP’d by Khalid Mohtaseb. Check it out below.
