Murkage Dave 'World I Want To Live In' by Sam Aminzadeh

Promonews - 12th May 2022

New director Sam Aminzadeh has made an auspicious music video directing debut with an delightful video for London singer-songwriter Murkage Dave, shot by the legendary DoP Robbie Ryan.

The video for World I Want To Live In expresses the positive message in Murkage Dave's gospel-influenced song, in a studio set-up where a group of disparate individuals come together to express themselves collectively through dance.

Dave is the charismatic centre that holds this group together, performing the song which reflects upon the stress that social media can cause, to him and to everyone else. The simple but expressive dance moves of the group - a collaboration of professional dancers and non-professionals - symbolises a common strategy, or therapy, to deal with the stress; finding a route to make that improved world that Dave is talking about.     

Aminzadeh has been working as an assistant to some eminent directors over the past few years, including Daniel Wolfe, Kim Gehrig and Grant Singer. With this accomplished debut he shows he has a very promising future as a director himself.
