What happens when a group of individuals with a love of the arts get together? KARMACODA explores this with their latest music video, directed by Gianfranco Bichine, explores this concept. Shot with a simple atmosphere, ‘Make Me The One’, combines a love for film (a tribute to the film 8 ½ by Frederico Fellini can be found throughout) as well as displaying a reverence for each of the band members.
The trio have a history of making award-winning videos, earning 3 Davey Awards for their music video, ‘Blue’. ‘Blue’ was directed by Hirokawa Hayashida and features the hand-drawn animation from long-time collaborator Gianfranco Bichine. KARMACODA returned to Bichine for the creation of the music video for ‘Make Me The One’, this time entrusting the artist as director. KARMACODA themselves shine throughout the video, with each band member’s skills being highlighted in a respectful manner.
Speaking of the video, Gianfranco Bichine tells us: “The look and feel of the video for Make Me the One was inspired by the legendary film 8 ½ by Frederico Fellini. We thought the use of black and white cinematography and strong lighting which created dynamic shadows was a perfect complement to the song’s lyrics and Jessica’s emotional vocals”.
