79/100 Video - "This Momentary" - Delphic (2009)

Delphic hails from the Manchester area, one of a laundry list of groups influenced by new wave in general, and New Order specifically.

The video for "This Momentary" by Delphic was shot using RED cameras giving the clip a cinematic look and feel. 

Rather than focus on the past, the clips shows actual people still living in and around Chernobyl. It's very moving. 

Director Dave Ma said "The aim for this video was to focus on the people still living in and around the Chernobyl area...It was about showing the humanity of the people and about capturing little moments in their lives in a composed and photographic way."

The music video was nominated for three UK Music Video Awards, including Best Cinematography and Best Editing for its shots in Chernobyl.
