We had the pleasure of directing and producing RJD2's music video "1976" from the album "Since We Last Spoke". The concept was born from video projection of footage we shot in Cuba during one of RJ's live shows - and quickly became a full-blown motion photography concept for this eclectic track. We sorted through thousands of photographs from a recent trip (that were never intended to be animated with this "parallax" method) to visualize the flair of the music, which has a distinct Latino sound, and use its driving beat to capture the lives and lifestyles of Cuba.
