Frenship "Capsize" (Andrew Donoho, dir.)

Dancing on water. Literally, kind of.

Andrew Donoho, director: "Frenship manages to capture a very complex duality in "Capsize": Sonically the song has such a sense of joy and celebration, but the tone is dripping with longing and isolation. Building visuals for a contradiction like this was an exciting challenge. I attempted to embrace the song's conflicting themes by braiding together the tangible emotion of dance with the visual metaphor of a walking over an isolated body of water to tell a simple human story about rekindling a former love. We tried to keep the effect as practical as possible by building a transparent platform just an inch below the water. We didn't want wires, greenscreen or CG to hinder the connection between the dancers or create any kind of emotional barrier during the performance. The dancers spent most of the day on the platform, in the center of a lake, totally isolated from the crew and the rest of production, which ended up adding a very interesting character layer and injected that tiny bit of visceral naturalism that makes these performances so compelling.  These fine details combined with our absolutely incredible team allowed us to build something genuinely special. I hope you enjoy watching as much as we did making it!"

Coasts "A Rush of Blood" (Andrew Donoho, dir.)

Coasts' "A Rush of Blood" portrays the experience of young freedom and recklessness through the lens of transient, teenage runaways in southeastern America. Following the story of a kid that leaves his life behind to travel with a group of fun-loving train hoppers, we introduce an eclectic, bizarre, nomadic community that moves from city to city in search of fun, love, and new experiences. The open energy of the song is matched by the intensity and passion by which this group leads their lives.
