Iconic Brisbane landmarks, graffiti-laced alleyways, underground pubs, graveyards, train tracks and coffee spots all set a stunning scene for Sera’s debut music video Doubt Around Me.
Inspired by film clips like Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, Stay the Night by Zedd and Leave a Trace by Chvrches, lead singer Eloise Mitchell says the band’s vision for the clip was relatively simple.
“We settled on the idea that I should be in the same spot for each shot with background changes to show different scenes, locations and people,” she said.
To achieve this cinematic feat, the band put in a lot of planning the week prior to the shoot, and then travelled to 30 locations over three days with their dedicated film crew.
”There were early morning starts, lots of car trips and a few unplanned hurdles, but after the first day of filming things seemed to get easier. We were so lucky to have an awesome crew who worked hard with us to make our vision a reality.”
While the music video is vibrant and beautifully shot, Eloise says the meaning of the piece lies within the song itself. Written after the loss of her Grandfather, Doubt Around Me is all about the fear of losing your loved ones, and hoping you have the strength to move forward.
“Doubt Around Me is about fear and strength. While fear can overpower you, the song is a reminder that fear doesn’t control you.”
Press play and revel in the delight that is Sera’s Doubt Around Me!
