Doomsday sign Lamar+Nik and Michael Parks Randa
Doomsday Entertainment have boosted their directing roster with the addition of long-admired directing team Lamar+Nik and up-and-coming talent Michael Parks Randa.
Lamar+Nik - aka Jesse Lamar High and Nik Harper - have been directing highly creative, often hand-crafted videos for almost a decade, often fusing live action performance with animation, for the likes of The Shins, The Pixies, Lushlife, Samantha Crain and, most recently, Husbands' Manhorse (above) - where they revived the proto-animation, optical illusion technique of barrier-grid animation, or 'scanimation'.
Michael Parks Randa has also joined Doomsday, having directed a number of noteworthy videos in the past couple of years, including clips for Mewithoutyou, Rick Ross & Dave East, and Shovels & Rope. Most recently, he has collaborated with 30 DPs across the country during lockdown to capture How Bout It by Delta Spirit, which is a celebration of filmmaking and a stirring ode to the American experience during the pandemic.
