The Illz: The Dreams of Life and Beth
My guy is back at it. The ILLZ along with filmmaker Kristopher Rey-Talley, will be releasing an innovative multimedia project on August 17th titled The In Between Video Series. Each song off the project will be released with a video as we approach the release date, and on the 17th, the each song and video will be available for download.
“The song is introspective and haunting, and I wanted to convey that through a simplistic set of visuals. Shooting on the Manhattan bridge at 5:30am, we got that clean ambient light, and complete desertion. Everything was shot on long lenses, creating a sense of deep space and complete loneliness. The video is a mood piece, low on concept but high on artistry and emotion. It is but the first chapter in a varied, complex and beautiful set of upcoming videos, one unlike that of any artist I’ve worked with thus far.”
I really like the concepts The ILLZ and his team have to offer, as I think this will one of the more insightful and powerful projects we will see this summer.
