Director Statement

Directing the video for LIKE U DO was an integral part of my creative process in creating a world for my song. The visual realm provides a new way to hear the song and brings about a totally different interpretation of the work. So making a video for this track was a necessary tool in order for me to show people different sides of me that they wouldn’t necessarily latch onto if they heard the song alone. I also love that making the visual allowed me to morph into different creatures and versions of myself that I had never seen before – I love transformation. I love dreaming and escaping. I want to make videos for as many songs as possible because I feel like the combination of music and imagery is what really allows other people to enter the fantasy world inside my head.
