VICIOUS – IS SHE WORTH IT (2016) from An Laphan on Vimeo.

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?“
