The story consists of a Trailer done in the style of a movie, followed by two music videos that tell a story.
The first video called Destiny (ft Devin the Dude and Matt G) explores the idea of every star in the sky being an alternate universe in which there are different versions of ourselves living significantly different lives. Mike the Model, plays a character who makes a connection with Mayra Leal (Machete, Playing House) in every alternate reality. The connection is sometimes romantic, sometimes brief, but the idea is that no matter what path his life takes, some things are destined to happen. In this case, he is destined to meet this girl in every reality and she is destined to aid him in significant ways.
Ima Martian (plot)
In Ima Martian (ft. WeedyMan), we pick up from the end of Destiny which lands Mike’s Character in a reality in which he is classified as clinically Insane. The twist is that from those very stars explored in the previous video, come two Aliens who seek to rehabilitate the “MisFits” of society (get it?!) and help them assimilate back into the real world. In the end Mike’s character is “fixed”, and upon returning to the asylum we see that all of the other inmates are waiting and ready to be helped as well.
Budget and interesting facts
These videos were shot with a budget of $0 and were filmed two years ago. Due to many changes in my life and Scott’s (the videographer) life we had to put this on hold but always planned to come back to it. Now, two houses, 1 marriage, and 1 baby later we are picking up from the same place we left off. The creative elements you see were not by accident, and although I included a lot in this write up, there any many Easter eggs left to be found. Everyone involved enjoyed making the videos and doing something a little different.
