Kendra Morris – “Woman”
Music Video (Director / Producer / Editor/ VFX)
When approached by Kendra Morris to do the video for “WOMAN”, we immediately wanted do something narrative and influenced by the work of David Lynch which we thought matched the cinematic themes in the song. We love Lynch’s interplay of friendly composition juxtaposed with danger. Our interpretation somehow resulted in bathroom selfies and dark back alleys.
For most of us there’s been a person in our past that we love to hate. In this video the “woman” unknowingly becomes a victim to our protagonist’s obsession. These days we consume far too much of our lives in social media judging from a distance people we might never meet. This harsh eye teetering on the brink hatred and jealously can drive one to literal insanity. We had fun exploring this idea to the intensity of absurdity, while remaining in the realm of possibility.
