A music video for Cursive's "Art is Hard" from their album, The Ugly Organ.
"Art is Hard" is a song about artists creating emotional music simply for cash. In the end, these people end up losing themselves in greed and melodrama. Essentially, they sell their pain. I chose to literally portray this exchange as a seedy dealing with the devil. As in the song, eventually the art gets the best of the seller.
Much thanks go to my friends Christine and Patrick for agreeing to appear in the video.
