Guy Pearce has delved back into his cinematic background to come up with a impassioned video for ‘Golden Heart’ from his ‘Broken Bones’ album.
The ‘Golden Heart’ video was created by Giovanni Ribisi and Cinematographer Natasha Braier (The Rover) and co-directed by Pearce.
Pearce filmed the video in Malibu, California and wanted to capture “the simplicity of a small boy on a stormy beach evoking a breathtaking loneliness”.
The video is interspersed with cinematic underwater scenes of Pearce swimming amongst sinking antique musical instruments.
According to Pearce, “After having just worked with my pal Giovanni on the film ‘Results’ in Austin Texas it was a treat to immediately collaborate again on this clip. Together with Natasha we all contributed idea’s to come up with something that I think expresses the nature of nostalgia beautifully. Natasha’s idea of projecting what we’d shot at the beach into the pool while I swam between the screen and the camera was just brilliant. As we know water can truly allow emotion to be expressed perfectly on a number of levels”
