We directed the anticipated DFA re-release of The Juan Maclean's "Happy House" dance anthem. Inspired by patterns of movement, the video is clean and sharp. Nancy Whang (also of LCD Soundsystem) and her back-up dancers acting as the white canvas for pulsating projections (side and front) of both still and in motion images. natural yet graphic, the palette of images cycle through from hue to hue in a rhythmic and perfectly chaotic cycle. Visually stimulating, the video is colorful, metallic and...HAPPY!
Shot over a few very hot summer weeks in and all over NYC, 8 mini movies made to become 1. Directed by Moh Azima, Produced by Michelle Price, Staring The Phenomenal Handclap Band. Song taken from the self-titled album out now on Friendly Fire Recordings.
