Spirit of Orlando

About the project

This was my first completely solo directing effort. A music video supported by Death to Stock, for the incredible Lisa McGuire AKA Spirit of Orlando. It premiered on c-heads magazine. Later, the video was the subject of some Conspiracy Theories that arose after the (absolutely tragic) shooting in Orlando. The conspiracy reactions were so fucking weird to see, including this INSANE video dissecting the music video.
