What is the best way to represent a song, and a song's meaning of war for oil profits, without putting miles of Iraq war footage? I struggled with this answer for a long time. In the end, for me, the answer lay not in putting obvious and direct footage in you, the viewers face. Instead, I chose to bring the message out by pushing the boundaries that are often present in the dualities of right and wrong. How the two sides can conflict with each other on both a subtle basis and a violent obvious bases. The best way to watch the Collapsed video is by turning up the sound really loud. Let your unconscious mind be open to let the flashes of subliminal images guide your feelings. As the video opens with the V.A.C. logo blooming into violence, I wanted to show the calm of the hunter, represented by split Black and White imagery. Bringing out the clear message of unforgivable, unexplainable justice. This is quickly given over to bright, flowing halos of color that guide the prey into fascinating yet unknown territories of exploration and terror. You'll find emotions of rage, freedom, terror, guns, oil, calm desperation as you follow the split personalities of a girl going mad as she tries both to navigate her new found freedom and cope with the repercussions of her violent actions. Although the underling visual message is often not clear and present, my artistic hand was guided by one force. Art.
