Director Statement

We came into the shoot with a really strong idea of tone and compositional style. We actually intended to shoot way more montage sequences, but within the first 20 minutes of being on set - we felt pretty inspired to instead shoot more elaborate single takes. In the end, the music video is only 6 shots cut together (with the odd disguised edit to make each shot flow into the next). - Ben Develin, Director

The intention was to always create a visually striking production that contrasts the atmosphere of the song. - Benjamin Ling, Assistant Director
