Charlene Kaye – Hummingbird Heart

In 2011, Charlene went on tour with internet sensation Team StarKid, where she opened for them across the country.

StarKid’s videographer, Liam White, had been filming every show, including Char’s set. He passed me along the footage and asked me to take a stab at an edit. I was really lucky to get such beautiful colors from Starkid’s lighting designer, Sarah Petty. And Liam’s videography really captured the energy and tremendous scope of each show. At the time, I was really obsessed with Mutemath’s music video “Allies,” which they also shot on tour. After playing with the footage for a while, I decided that layering clips and playing with transparency would add another dimension to the footage– putting my own spin on the “tour video.”
