I'll explain this in a nutshell so at least the record is now out there if I prematurely die in a Prius accident. Painting is a two dimensional art with the illusion of three. Film is the perception of three dimensions with the fourth dimension of time. Dimensions ultimately limit the nature of what you can do. As you hop into higher dimensions, you have more mathematical options to explore. Here I created a simultaneous timeline where three things seem to happen at the same moment. One happens during the day, another afternoon, another at night. But then I swap out the time frames and guys without editing, so the time frames jump around in each box. We are actually jumping out of four dimensions and exploring impossible paradoxes in an extra dimension. I call it five dimensional editing. Of course there is no way in hell you ever write that down in a music video treatment to a label. I pitched it as “a girl cheating on three guys at the same time.”
A couple notes. This was shot in Australia shortly after Torque and Toxic. I went through tons of girls and finally discovered Sophie Monk down there. Convinced her to move to America. I blocked and designed the video the morning of the shoot in a couple hours. Yeah, it's like that.
