Chimere : music video
art direction, filming, editing
Music video for Chimere, from Morti Viventear’s third album Sleep Deprived Pessimist. Inspired by the enigmatic world of satellite transmissions, the visuals take us back to the ‘90s, when X-Files and the vapor wave collided. Drawn from Greek mythology, the chimera is an evil supernatural creature that heralded natural disasters.
Like the video’s music, the creature’s feminine form is presented in a succinct, even subliminal manner. The visuals feature clips filmed in 8mm and Super 8mm, overlaid on sinister, twisted imagery evoking the chimera myth.
