BRIGHTON, UK — Radikal Records artist Salt Ashes has released a new video for her Counting Crosses track. The UK-based artist, whose real name is Veiga Sanchez, shot the video herself using an iPhone while in quarantine.
Counting Crosses, which is also the name of her new EP, employs crimson-drenched visuals. The entire project was shot and edited Salt Ashes' bedroom.
"I filmed and edited this music video by myself in my bedroom whilst in lockdown,” she recalls. “It’s amazing what you can create when you put your mind to it…I used a white sheet, red lights, a tripod, my iPhone and my housemate’s hands for the shots towards the end. I wanted to create some visually interesting and artistic shots by moving and positioning my body in different angles, playing with the contrast of skin on skin and editing the video to make it very dynamic and disjointed.”
Veiga cut the 3:20 video in Adobe Premiere, and Simon J Davy used Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve for the color grade.
