George O'Reilly directs a riveting video for the team-up of Matt Ryder with Birdy, capturing great performances from the artists being adversely affected by water, for Riverbed.
The visual highlights the kinetic energy of the track, using nature as an inspiration, embracing it in all its forms - from the smallest of raindrops to the most powerful strikes of thunder.
The desaturated colour palette and experimental cinematography creates a timeless feel, with a dreamy yet surreal aesthetic. But above all, it's Birdy's compelling performance in the video - including a barely credible underwater lipsync sequence - which really sets the tone in this excellent piece of work.

I can't speak more highly of George - he has amazed me with his skill and professionalism as a young director!
