Director Statement

In music videos I like making narratives with a bit of surreal transformation, mixed with some uncomfortable politeness and frustrating misunderstandings. This clip was Verge Collection's first, and my goal was to introduce its front man by showing how he welcomes an unusually large stranger into his home. This video received a respectable amount of online viewership on the heels of the single's nationwide radio success on Australia's much-loved Triple J.
