Director Statement

In this music video, Son of Paper will be giving the audience a view of his upbringing in Chinatown, by using a montage of clips and videos that show certain places of significance to him, while being accompanied by his lyrical illustrations that tell each places’ individual story. I hope you enjoy the first music video that I've had the pleasure of directing for another artist!
