Australia’s very own What So Not continues to stay in the news the announcement of his massive “Beautiful Things” world tour with the release of the vivid official music video of “Be Ok Again” where we see the producer from a whole new angle.
What So Not actually wrote, co-directed, played a character role and even edited some film for his latest piece of visual work and we have to admit, the results are quite impressive. Check it out!
“If nothing else, this video is quite a personal feat to me. Diving head first into to new territory (with filmmaker buddy Luke Eblen by my side) I wrote, co-directed, played a character role, dabbled in film editing and even managed to convince Daniel Johns to trust our vision and have him feature as one of the main protagonists in this piece,” says Emoh.
“We worked with a small budget (most of the shots taken in a half mile circumference of Luke’s house). We sourced props and items from hardware and thrift stores and used the environment around us – swimming pools, industrial spaces & the ocean (Nima [Director] & Luke actually had me swim out fully clothed in 12ft surf for some of the shots ha).”
“Many of the final shots you see in the clip were actually test shots captured a GoPro, that felt so raw and real we couldn’t beat them with a $100,000 camera. We enlisted the help of the many amazing & talented people in my home town to pull it all together, as well as a call out to fans to join in as extras (Thank you all!).”
