DAZED / W HOTELS - FOMO (The Fear Of Missing Out)
FOMO: an acronym we can all relate to at some stage. It’s that feeling that reverberates through the modern generation’s lives, now that the Fear Of Missing Out influences the 773,618 choices we make in a lifetime.
Directors Jeremy Valander and Dave Lane’s (Founder of Gourmand & Art director of Frieze) film stylistically struck a balance between modern new wave cinema, such as 'Lost in Translation' and classic French new wave cinema.
The music WW Composition created combined a rhythm section that tipped its hat to the French new wave jazz style but used modern techniques such as sampling and analog synthesis to contemporise the score. Adding cello and vocals gave the track a human gravity whilst still remaining light and airy to fit with the ethos of the film and the character of actress Laura Kampman.
