Lord Danger’s Mike Diva, known for vibrant and wildly original films that blend animation and live action, has teamed up with rappers Yung Pinch and Lil Skies to create a haunting neo-future music video for their new track, "Nightmare.” Set to a song about heartbreak stemming from one’s inner demons, the video employs Japanese and anime inspired imagery to create a world where our troubles manifest and materialize into the masks we wear — and where the damage done is deadly.
You would think that a gig as Fry Guy at Slappy Joe's wouldn't severely crimp All Time Low singer Alex Gaskarth's ability to still be irresistible, so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise when a glance in the mirror reveals something much gnarlier as the reason why nobody wants to get close to him.
PS: Pretty sure no cats were injured in the making of this video.
Spence Nicholson, director: "I found the depth capturing technology of the RGBD toolkit process to be the best way to capture and manipulate our footage to reflect the themes of the track. The technology allows us to move around in our compositions after the fact, but anything not recorded with color information falls off into nothing, giving us seams. This is similar to what we see on the surface of relationships: Happy times, angry times, there's always more to the story than what meets the eye and this technology allowed us to visualize those seems. Oftentimes people use a new technology, even this one, as a technical exercise or just to have a cool visual, but it is so much more powerful when you can give it a purpose and reflect and enhance the themes of your subject matter."
