Yonaka 'Seize The Power' by Jade Ang Jackman
Jade Ang Jackman directs a cyberpunk-inspired promo for Yonaka's comeback single Seize The Power.
The enigmatic video opens with vocalist Theresa entombed in a glass box, performing various glitchy movements whilst a hesitant doppelgänger carefully approaches her.
Falling somewhere stylistically between The Matrix series and Hellraiser, the aesthetic is beautifully rich and well considered, delivered via Ash Halliburton's art direction and complemented by DoP Kai Blamey Nguyen's use of ramped-up frame rates and night-vision style cinematography.
The ideas of rebirth, growth and taking back control of our own lives are visualised with abstract flair, with Jade's bold direction confidently guiding the narrative to an exciting climax.
“Theresa wanted to play with ideas relating to rebirth and the power that can emanate from within," explains Jade Ang Jackman. "Given her own strong and unique energy, together we could experiment with different moods and stages to show that journey gaining internal strength.
"It was super fun to work with an artist who is not afraid to show their wild or ugly side too!”
