A double-bill of videos for debuting downbeat R&B singer Kenzie by Camille Summers-Valli. And the artist and the director collaborated closely on the premise of the videos that were inspired by lucid dreaming. 

Dark July introduces us to Kenzie in reoccurring narratives, all which build with tension and perplexing encounters. Set in a luxurious hotel, Kenzie's interactions with the other guests in the hotel lobby, corridors and her room are dreamlike and sensual, the symbolism derived from common tropes that Kenzie and Camille associate with. 

The Funeral video responds to the strong sense of symbolism within the track - the "dressed up for my funeral" line that implies a contradictory sense of confidence - which is relayed as Kenzie's slow progress through the rain-soaked streets.

Impressively shot by DoP Maximillian Pittner, both videos were shot on location in Bulgaria on a tight budget. Producer Mayling Wong says that the project was "a labour of love" for it's hard-working crew. It's certainly one that will help put Kenzie, and Camille Summers-Valli, on the map.
