Don't Leave Me
FILM & ART DIRECTION
Don't Leave Me is a record I released via my music project Dan Kanvis. I wrote the treatment for this music video, handled art direction, and also directed it, with additional help from my cinematographer. The song is very intimate and vulnerable, which inspired my choice to rely heavily on shots that are, at times, uncomfortably close. The lyrics are filled with loneliness and longing, so I was very inspired by the feeling of maintaining a distant relationship with family, and the isolation that can be felt in tight and vast spaces alike.
