How do you get someone to stop scrolling their facebook feed without using a video of kittens or puppies?
“Mona Lis” is a euphoric exploration of beauty in pain. Sean Blake HTF and I set out to create a teaser video for the song – with absolutely zero budget.
As a collaborative effort, Sean and I ventured into the endless world of vintage public domain video footage. There is so much of it (good and bad), you could spend a lifetime going through the stuff. It felt like we did.
We cut together footage from old sci-fi flicks, full-length feature films that were actually elaborate propaganda against drinking and drugs, and even a burlesque video!
The cover art for the song seeks to capture the surreal, cinematic after-effects of alcohol.
