Gloom in Bloom: Video Romanticises the Dark Side of Hong Kong

May 5th 2014

Dreading the wet and rainy week ahead of us? Here’s a video that might just make you appreciate dark days in Hong Kong. Forget the cliché sunshiny ‘City of Lights’ films and welcome videographer Maison Carnot’s two-day take of the more realistic side of our city.

Hong-Kong The Dark City from Maison Carnot on Vimeo.

This omniscient piece was filmed on a handheld camera and bought to life via great pacing, picture style and a romantically moody soundtrack. Carnot truly captures the often overlooked gorgeousness of Hong Kong gloom. Perhaps there’s beauty in pollution after all!
