BBC Radio 1 Rescores Drive: 48-Hour Music Video Challenge

BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe was given the unique rights to the cult film Drive, starring Carey Mulligan and Ryan Gosling. A new digital art online platform, The Space, and Radio 1 came together to take this project into an innovative live and digital environment – at Central St Martins and on The website. Zane Lowe was also the host of the film premiere at which one of the bands that worked on the new soundtrack - Bastille - performed for a handpicked audience. Simultaneously, I was chosen by The Space along with five other art or film students studying at arts schools across the UK to take part in a 48 Hour Music Video Challenge. Each of us was provided with a Go Pro and Canon 5D camera, which we used to capture content before and during the Drive event. We were given exclusive access to film content as well as Radio 1 producers, and the incredible building at Central St Martin’s as well as anywhere else in London we wanted to shoot at. I utilised the rushes I shot on a 5D camera plus professional BBC footage to cut together my own music video in 48 hours.
