Showtime “Music Box”

We were honored when Showtime commissioned us to create this film, as part of their SHOrt Stories film series. With “Music Box,” we wanted to create a film that turns the traditional process of music video making on its head. Rather than starting with a song and making a video to accompany it, we wanted both the music and the visuals to evolve together organically. So we partnered up with our favorite musical coffee-drinkers, Huma-Huma, locked ourselves in a really hot studio space in Brooklyn, rented a humungous projector, and proceeded to bang on things for about a week. This is what came out.
