Marcus Renno Music Video – The White Ghost
In the "White Ghost" video our challenge was to represent a dark and surreal atmosphere involving Marcus in a performance.
Inspired by the lyrics and the title I thought to create a story about a ghost in a Victorian environment, but I didn't want it to feel like the usual cliché ghost story. I wanted more interesting elements to stimulate the viewer in to find the real ghost in the story.
I asked to Marcus to act like a ghost in the first part of the story and using the element of the water as a clue to find the real vision, the girl.
As a deep trip into his subconscious we build series of visuals in which, step by step, through metaphoric scenes involving water and glasses, the story reveals the mother-scene: Marcus seating alone in the sofa reaching his hand to nobody. I found this scene really interesting and one of my main goals was to leave the audience wondering about the bathtub ending, which I hope I have archived.
