The world is dark place right now and luckily we have music to bring us all together no matter where we are in the world. Not only is Major Lazer and Showtek‘s collaboration one of the biggest tracks we’ve seen all year, but it also sends a powerful message thanks to director, Christopher Louie.
“The concept of the video was inspired by the images of Omran Daqneesh, the Syrian boy covered in dust in the ambulance after his house was hit by a bomb. Like everyone in the world I was heartbroken by that image but I also saw a glimmer of hope. As dark as the subject matter is the point of our “Believer” video was to capture the resilience of youth and the hope displayed by communities coming together to save victims from the rubble. If it wasn’t for the support from Sjoerd of Showtek and guidance from Major Lazer and their team, this video would not have turned out as emotionally powerful as it has.They supported us going to the Middle East, shooting with all local cast, crew and keeping it as authentic as possible. There were countless obstacles that go along with shooting in an unfamiliar country but with the help of the local film community we got through them all and created something special in the process.” – Director Christopher Louie
