I’m Kin is an abstract video made with lights, reflections and textures, a six minutes evocative and atmospheric work emphasizing the hidden meanings of the song. When colleen and I talked about the video, I was fascinated to learn how she constructed her song and created the lyrics, so, we chose to embody these lyrics but in the meantime we wanted to create something mysterious, surreal and intriguing.
On a more technical and metaphorical level, Colleen’s music is very dichotomic, it sounds like ambient, modern cold downtempo, but it is crafted with real instruments, I really love this way of working and wanted to convey this in the video, that’s why I used many organic elements and manipulated the images in a sharp numerical way, with mixed sequences, a large amount of post production and many subtle chromatic aberrations.
