David Wilson's video for Arcade Fire's 'We Exist' is one of my favourite music videos from last year (along with Andrew Douglas' video for Jake Bugg's 'Messed Up Kids' which I have previously blogged about)
The song itself has a very distinctive message and atmosphere and Wilson has caught this in the video to a tee. It is carefully crafted, beautifully joyous and keeps you watching to the end, which for a 6min music video is no mean feat. It stars Andrew Garfield, who gives a sensitive and warm performance and he is choreographed by the wonderful Ryan Heffington (who had choreographed videos for Sia and one of my all time favourite videos - Sigur Ros' 'Fjögur píanó' by Alma Har'el - but that's for another post). When I'm in LA this year I am heading to SWEAT SPOT Ryan Heffington's dance studio as I've heard he takes a Sunday class there - it's got to be good!
