Hold On To Me

by Syd Briscoe


Rika: “Hold On To Me” - 3 mins 04s

Eye catching design work and tumultuous romance come together to create this promo for Rika's 'Hold On To Me'. The singer and her beau exist in a pastel-painted world, with only the ever-changing picture outside their window contrasting the cheery interior and suggesting storms may be on the horizon.

The film has a pleasantly surreal quality, with shifting dimensions and multiple versions of the same people giving things a gently psychedelic vibe. It feels like an appropriate piece of work to watch during the dying days of summer - warm with just a hint of chill in the air.
