A three part short movie that flows through different music videos from Matthew and The Arrogant Sea’s latest album, ‘The Glooms Pt.1’

Director’s Statement

It was a truly unforgettable and dreamlike experience making this project with Matthew and The Arrogant Sea. They were (and still are) my favorite band growing up, so to get to artistically collaborate with them on these videos, and to experience such creative freedom, has been liberating. Each part to this short movie for me represents separate unique and surreal adventures. “A bump on the head in three parts.” It’s the culmination of an expansive journey deep in to the depths of our dreams and our nightmares.

pt.1 is ‘Broke (for years)’

‘You have to die a few times before you can really live.’ -Bukowski

pt.2 is ‘Swedish Death Metal Cassette’

‘The truth is of course that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.’ -David Bowie

pt.2.5 is ‘Dreams Are Nightmares Too.’

‘Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?’ -John Lennon

pt.3 is ‘Traveling Show’

‘We are like roses that have never bothered to bloom when we should have bloomed and it is as if the sun has become disgusted with waiting.’ -Bukowski
