Zane Lowe re-scored the cult film. We gave six students two days to make the music video.
In October 2014, Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe asked some of his favourite musicians - including Chvrches, Bastille, SBTRKT, The 1975 and Laura Mvula – to re-score the cult film Drive, and hosted a premiere at Central St Martins in London, where a handpicked audience saw Bastille stage a live performance of their tracks.
The show was filmed for Radio 1’s YouTube channel, and The Space challenged six art students from across the UK to create a music video in for it in just 48 hours. They were: Violeta Aguirre, Kay Ibrahim, Denis Chingov, Louis Giles, Elenor Hellis and Magda Sunset.
Each student was given a GoPro and Canon 5D camera to capture video and photos at the premiere, plus exclusive access to film content, Radio 1 producers, and the creative facilities at Central St Martins.
Below is a short documentary on the making of the films.
