YEASAYER - Wait for the Summer

Made for the band Yeasayer by Mixtape Club. I assisted in writing a second draft of the script, and drafting storyboards. It was a team effort with everyone designing elements, shooting video and lending a hand wherever needed.

It was a wonderful blur.

 

ROLE
This project was created in a very open, multi-disciplinary environment. The very talented Kim Dulaney created the style frames that inspired the overall direction and tone of the video. The multi-talented team of Mixtape Club Directed the video, and have since gone on to start their own successful production companies

These folks are near and dear to my heart. Michelle Higa, Chris Smith and Jesse Casey. I own a great debt to the time that we spent together, expanding on the techniques they honed during their time at Brown University.  I'm just happy to have been aware enough, and open enough to contribute to their continued creative exploration.
