I discovered the social media hashtag ‘#L4L’ through Marysia, the film's protagonist.

By tagging your posts with '#L4L', you agree to exchange a "like" for a "like".

The film focuses on the need for social media validation and its effects on teenagers like Marysia.

ALTERLIFE | MUSIC VIDEO | 4 MINS | UNITED KINGDOM | 2017 • 


Watch video here.


Featured on VICE, VOGUE, THE VINYL FACTORY and KALTBLUT.

Visuals used on live tour.


This project was originally commissioned for seven 10-second mini videos to accompany Rina’s debut EP. Creatively, our discussion centered around themes of reclaiming identity – specifically for Rina, who grew up in England, her Japanese heritage.

The day before production, Rina had signed with VEVO and asked if we could shoot a music video for the channel.

I listened to a pre-mixed version of Alterlife 12 hours before call time and was immediately inspired by its energy and message.

In between photographs on set, Rina would improvise characters for each look created by the stylist, hair and make up artist.

I created mini worlds around each avatar to enhance their personalities in the edit, with references to anime, Street Fighter and 70s Japanese vinyl cover art.
