Music video for Amenta Abioto
In order to complement Amenta Abioto’s fantastical song Plant It, I knew I had to create a visual landscape as equally vibrant and otherworldly. Amenta saw nature as a source of magic to manifest her dreams from. To convey that visually, I pulled together a group of visionary artists to create a breathtaking plantscape infused with pastel lighting, analog television sets, mementos, and even a chameleon for Amenta to engage with. Her shamantic journey through surreal worlds, adorned in vestments inspired by wardrobes from the film The Color of Pomegranates, tells a beautiful story of her connection with nature – whether she is outside frolicing in it, or enshrined by a futuristic plant lair.
Plant it has screened at Local Sighting Film Festival, Tacoma Film Festival, and many more.
