White Swan

White Swan is Sil van der Woerd’s second music video for singer Lolly Jane Blue. The video was shot in a dead coal mine in Belgium with the Red One camera. The post production was done in collaboration with students from Gnomon School of Visual Effects.

A former student of Gnomon himself, Sil had seen first hand the level of talent of students at Gnomon, but was surprised with the outcome of the project in many ways. “I was really blown away at how flexible and well-rounded the students were that worked on the video,” says Sil. I would throw them a very complex task and they were able to problem solve and get the work done. It turned out better than even I expected and I had set the bar extremely high. The dedication to not just get it done, but to get it done perfectly was apparent from the start.”
