The Quarry’s Flaura Atkinson Cuts Massive Attack’s Latest Promo ‘Come Near Me’

Editing talent Flaura Atkinson’s latest collaboration with director Ed Morris is the haunting new music video for Massive Attack and their new track ‘Come Near Me’, featuring vocals by Ghostpoet. 

The dark narrative of the film, both written and directed by Rattling Stick’s Ed Morris, follows a couple as they walk from a house, into the streets, across parkland, roads and beyond. 

Featuring subtle and emotional performances across a timeline that jumps back and forth director Ed Morris comments on the importance of the edit, “My editor Flaura [Atkinson at The Quarry] is, I think, one of the best editors in the world, certainly when it comes to anything musical. We worked backwards. I knew the pace must come from the last scene. I asked her to string it out as much as possible, make it almost unbearably drawn out. We found the film that way; it’s rhythm and atmosphere. Then we built it scene by scene, comments director Ed Morris.

On collaborating and working on the music video Flaura adds, “Ed had a great vision for this project and I’m hugely proud to have been a part of helping it come to life. We started editing it backwards so we could really get a sense of the characters and why they had reached this desperate point. It was such a fun process, Ed has such a brilliant, creative mind and I always enjoy editing with him. We were also able to interrupt the track with the narrative and play around with it musically, which is quite unusual in a promo. Scott Little at Smoke & Mirrors did an amazing job with the sound design and I think that really helps this promo to become more than a music video”
