Stranger

ART DIRECTION & PRODUCTION DESIGN

Stranger is a record I released via my music project Dan Kanvis. I collaborated on this music video with another director, contributing treatment concepts as well as art direction and production design. The writing in the song is very paranoid, creepy, and borderline schizophrenic so my intent was to develop the eerie feeling of being followed. I was super inspired by Frank Miller's Sin City graphic novel series and the drama that he was able to create utilizing isolated color. We left a lot of the room structure unknown to encourage the imagination of our audience in the same way that comic book artists leave key moments between the panels.
