The video was conceived of and designed by Brooklyn-based illustrator Dan-ah Kim, and executed with the help of director Aaron Stewart-Ahn. For the first time Kim is directing a work of her own, collaborating with Stewart-Ahn for his technical knowledge. The pair met while working as crew on a Michel Gondry project. For Dan-ah the video was a chance to experiment with animation, which was done in camera without the aid of computers or greenscreens.
Dan-ah's illustrative works can be seen at dkim-art.com. In the past year she has shown at Thinkspace in L.A. and Giant Robot in NYC.
