Kari Faux 'Fantasy' by Carlos Lopez Estrada
Carlos Lopez Estrada is consistently unleashing remarkable videos into the world. This latest is no exception. For jazz singer Kari Faux's Fantasy, he lets the camera continually circle an apartment, using the detritus that builds up throughout the video tell a story of heartbreak, and the things we let slide when that level of emotion takes hold of us. It's a brilliantly executed one at that, with a well pitched blend of real emotion and music video magic.
From the simple piling up of dirty dishes to the sparking of wall outlets and the death of protagonists on TV - we're shown a very clear path downwards, which ends – unforgettably – with a giant anthropomorphized double bass destroying Kari's apartment block. Yep. Classic storytelling done right.
