Always on My Mind

“Always on My Mind” is an unexpected concept that illustrates a strong sense of longing for a person that you love, but are unable to be with. In the video, Sapra plays a prisoner who is forced to undergo an off-the-books memory wiping procedure in order to be released early from his fifty-year prison sentence. As we experience this procedure from his perspective, we see Sapra’s character go through a spiritual and emotional journey of self-reflection. He looks onto the past memories of his girlfriend with longing and regret while also desperately trying to keep the memory of her and their romance from being erased forever.

Director Biography - Michael Washington

In short, I’m a Los Angeles based creative director with a background that includes art direction, motion design, visual effects, editing, and sound editing, but more than anything I consider myself simply a visual storyteller. Even back when I was a kid I was always pausing and analyzing my favorite movies and paying close attention to the techniques used to create captivating moments. The often unseen details that work in harmony to create something truly compelling is what intrigued me the most and still does to this day.

After I graduated with a B.F.A. in Film and Television from Savannah College of Art and Design I became entrenched in those details by working professionally on a wide variety of projects under many hats. From unscripted shows, commercials, branded content, music videos, and ultimately feature film advertising, I learned very thoroughly that for effective visual storytelling, understanding how to manage all the creative details is everything.

Whether it be graphic design; animation; editing techniques; sound design; cinematography; visual effects; or copy writing, every detail can be used to build something remarkable across any media. It’s become my passion to create uniquely detail focused story-driven content that disrupts conventions and rewards viewers who pay close attention. I’m someone who relishes in collaborating with clients and leading production teams to create compelling original content where viewers can always find… more within.

Director Statement

My approach in directing Always on My Mind was to create an unexpected, but engaging concept with an abstract narrative that fits the themes of the song and pushes the limits on what a music video can be.
