Flawless

short film for the music video for Boston artist BRODIE's music video flawless (made by emerson folks!)
. Artist statement below:

This song is a soundscape of hopes, dreams and expectations.
I aimed to create a representative of my headspace in relation to music;
The highs & lows, the pressures & reliefs.
A perfectionist, a night owl, a visionary
attempting to carve out his place.
This it what Flawless embodies.
