The indie rock band PaperDoll has a great sound and we knew we wanted to do a music video with them the first time we listened to their music. They do most of their videos in one location, and the challenge for us was finding a concept that they liked, that got us excited, and that would engage their audience. This video required tons of work and planning before the shoot (every movement was choreographed and timed). We had a lot of hands helping out the day we shot, from make-up to costumes to music playback to the handing off of props, and we were quite happy with the results. Check it out! Written and directed by Michael Rosete. Produced by Erik Lu, Willa Yeh, and Franklin Shen.
