Metric 'Lost Kitten' by Sammy Rawal
Shot over two days in Mexico City, Sammy Rawal's promo for Metric's Lost Kitten follows one's man unusual search for home.
The video documents ballroom dancer/actor Sheldon McIntosh as he searches for his mother, collecting mysterious symbols and clues from pedestrians along the way and showcases Sheldon's display of brilliant body-bending choreography.
“We shot on a small island there called La Isla de las Munecas. It's only accessible by a 45-minute trip via trajinera. On our way back to the mainland to shoot the last scene, we encountered a torrential rainstorm, and our trajineras started to take on water. The entire crew and gear were on these sinking boats, and all I could picture was bloodthirsty crocodiles and mutant anacondas waiting for us in the water.
"We finally approached the access point where passengers exit the boat, and the boat is lifted out of the water and over a cement barricade. As we got there, we found out that it had just been struck by lightning and we couldn't go any further. It was incredible.”
