Mood Mondays - Episode 15: "Pure" by Ginger Brooks Takahashi and Mirah Yom Tom Zeitlyst

I've always been in love with the song, "Pure" by Ginger Brooks Takahashi and Mirah Yom Tom Zeitlyst.

I didn't have a clear concept videography wise for this episode, but Selina and I collaborated on creating the space once we figured out what I would be doing movement wise. We deliberately started off in darkness, and I thought it'd be interesting to direct my movement to the light ball since it was such had such a strong visual presence in the shot:

Mood Mondays - Episode 12: "Bill Murray" by Phantogram

This mood wasn't inspired by a deep psychological state of confusion, but a reaction to the strange weather in Los Angeles.

Then I thought about how living in the unknown can be very powerful. Being dazed and confused can be unsettling, but when I find myself in that state I remind myself that as long as I persevere there is clarity at the other side:
