I find so much inspiration from music. So much. i can't tell you how much exactly. there's something about walking around a city like Tokyo, having it all drowned out and filled in with the music of your choice. It's like you can create your own videos as you walk along, see certain styles and admire certain things.
Recently I'm getting a lot of inspiration from old Manchester bands such as Joy Division, The Smiths and The Stone Roses. There's something from that time that is caught in their music.....a slight funk trying to escape. A message of something to say reflecting that time politically. Not that I'm biased being a manchester boy but there's so much political edge to all their videos etc. i really wanna do a shoot inspired by some of their videos. That said, here are a few videos I have favourited on youtube recently. (Not all manchester bands but a mix of things)i need to look into the direction etc.
Especially this siouxsie vid. Omg she is amazing....love the visuals!
