Diara Vassallo Ndiaye directs her debut music video for Chaz's Don't Text Me. 

Ambitious from the off, the visual is shot in one take across four interconnected rooms. Dancing around the location, Chaz breaks into spontaneous performance setups, framed by vintage art direction and a moody colour palette of greens and dark blues. 

DoP Natasha Duursma creates a dreamy, otherworldy style through hazy atmospheres and shaped lighting, elevating the real word setting into something more transcendent.
