Documentary Music Video on MMA pioneer Marloes Coenen
This video is our second attempt to create a music video that is actually a documentary.
The first had many stylistic features that where not allowed in the traditional doc world, for example we filmed downtown Los Angeles without cars on the roads, which was completely set by us. And our protagonist Carel Struycken was in fact not leading us through the desert, as it seems, but we told him what to do and where to walk.
This time around we took a different approach. We wanted to follow Marloes Coenen, the worlds leading female MMA fighter and pioneer in her field, during training for a big fight. That way we would not be the ones creating story and emotion, but she would naturally bring it to us.
