Director Statement

In the previous video that I directed for Jason for his song "Get Thee Behind Me" we had him as this post-apocalyptic wandering survivor, and for "Expiration Day" we wanted to revisit that character and expand on it a bit. Especially after this past year of being on our own and living through real-life apocalyptic events, it felt like a natural choice to bring that character back and to send him on a journey.
The song's lyrics evoke some supernatural themes, so the creature came about in response to that. Throughout the pandemic I think we've all had an uneasy feeling of having this unseen threat following us around, and I tried to visualize that feeling in the way the creature is lurking throughout the video.
