The video for BAD STREAM’S new single SEX CRIES is a portrayal of insomnia in the age of social disconnect. It pits the drug and technology-infused upper-and-downer lifestyle against the critical mythology of the BAD STREAM concept album in kinetic freeze frames of excess and loneliness.

The music video for the song “IS SHE WORTH IT?” by Viennese band VICIOUS is an experiment to combine lessons I learned from filmmaking and installative video art. It features the two most common archetypes of music video style: the narrative music video and the performance music video, both of which I see usually heavily intercut.
What would happen if I treated it as 2-channel video installation to separate the band from the story and hence seperate the narrative spaces to bypass the rapid-fire editing most common in commercial music videos?
Further, I tried to explore, how the girl they sing about would react to the song. What if “Is she worth it?” becomes “Am I worth it?”
