VIDEO: Open Mike Eagle & Paul White - "Dang Is Invincible"

"Dang Is Invincible" from Hella Personal Film Festival by Open Mike Eagle and Paul White.  The video for this track is the work of Studio Doulzia.  It's a 2D animation studio focused on creating feature film animation reflective of groups unfairly censored or underrepresented in media; POC and LGBTQ people, while refining Doulzia’s house aesthetics.  Doulzia founder Alex Pierre directed the video outlines the vision for the project: 

“Conceptually the video parallels Mike's stream of consciousness and the narrative style of rap. The video follows Studio Doulzia's Noul (the protagonist of their film concept Skeletonblood) moving through train cars in a New York Subway Q Train. Noul anxiously looks for a train car where she can feel at ease, her journey speaks to finding assurance and humor in the subtle unfamiliarities that exist within the atmosphere of intimate settings like train cars, that otherwise could make a person feel vulnerable. The song felt really visceral, and we wanted to capture that as much as we can visually.”

The video really is a perfect match for one of our favourite tracks from this album.  Get Hella Personal Film Festival here.
