Director Michael Leblanc shot the video for Wintersleep’s “Spirit” in one day using non-dancers who turn a small-town bingo hall into their own dance floor.
I wanted to show a portrait of someone dealing with isolation. The main characters’ world reflects a mirror of his internal life. It’s about escapism and finding freedom during a breakdown,” Leblanc tells
. “I needed a technique for the dance that could visually work with the dancers. So we slowed the song down and shot at a lower frame rate which enabled them to hit all the beats together.”
