This here is the first new dance video of the year, Sick Presents | "LOOPED". I spent a day in DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) exploring the area and taking pictures with a friend of mine. The day was cold and snowy but it made for great adventuring weather so we linked up, took our cameras and set out to get some photos of the area. I hadn't planned of shooting a dance video, it just came together when we chilled at an art gallery and the setting caught our eyes. As I looked around the gallery I was able to mentally set up the edits of frames in my head and my homeboy was able to see and direct how we should shoot the sequences. As the saying goes, two heads are better than one and we collaborated to make this piece here work.
I titled the video LOOPED because that day in DUMBO, we stayed in the area and looped around blocks and buildings and then did the same walking the hallways of the gallery. As we walked the hallways the idea of a maze being looped over and over again played in my head and the track Trashlagoon - Mastermind set the tone for this just perfect. The lighting for this video worked in our favor because it help to create that feel of walking a maze and not knowing when and where it ends and it gave a deeper feel with the filming being black and white.
