Cat Velez - 17th June 2015

Zedd's Beautiful Now video directed by Jodeb is "the story of five people flirting with life and death in insidious ways."

Indeed, the video, which was shot over six days in Guatemala and six days in Czech Republic, is a snapshot of a moment in five individuals' lives, each from a different background, evoking heightened, intense emotions.

Happiness, joy, desperation, love, fear, anger, and resignation are all contained within the clip, expressing the joy and pain of human, mortal experience. It's quite a ride, and quite an achievement.
