Director Statement

This video has been a joy to work on. With Jennifer and Kimberly’s music it was easy to imagine the video, but hard to craft the visuals that could measure up to the balanced elegance and intensity of the performance. I knew as soon as I heard the piece that the video had to be special. We set new bars for ourselves, and every single person involved in this project gave their 110%. These kinds of projects are miracles, especially when everything works out and exceeds your expectations. Thank you to all my crew and thank you to Jennifer for letting me be a part of this project and sharing this vision. We’re a great team and I feel like we’re just getting started!
