Director Statement

This film about opposites and attraction is a pure passion project!
Something that mirrors my thoughts, something I wanted to do for a long time…..something I am just honestly proud of!
This is my interpretation of a couple trying to survive the insurmountable differences between them.

Short Film: SOLARIS, 5min., Australia, Music Video

E4752ff12f poster

Directed and edited by filmmaker and band member Stephanie Peters, the clips journey into the twisted and depraved mind of a psychopath is inspired by none other than the Crawford Family murders whose deaths rocked Australia’s Great Ocean Road community in the 1970’s and to date whose killer has never been found. “

The music for Solaris was written in an abandoned old farmhouse that we have access to near the great ocean road; as a response to a dream journal. When Steph hatched the idea for exploring the Crawford Family Murders it just seemed beautifully cyclical that we return to the place where the music was conjured up ”.

Short Film: SUNFLOWER SUTRA, 4min., Netherlands, Music Video

Cato

The music video Sunflower Sutra is about finding your totem in the animal kingdom. The rooster, hare and pig; that stand for the constellations of My Baby’s band members, go through different phases where they discover their self during the totem ceremony. The video is divided into three sections: birth, ceremony and rebirth, each represented by a new twist in the track’s pacey sense of snaking momentum. The spiritual animals eventually breaking apart after finding their personal totem and feeling stronger than before. All handmade masks, outfits, and magic settings come together in a new surrealistic prehistoric dance world where it’s about finding your spiritual animal.
