About this Film:
“The film stars Riley Freeman as its nameless protagonist, in a music video (the song is mine as well) about a high-school-aged girl with some bad luck. After a hard day, she finds solace in video games, and she is finally happy… The real concept I was going for here is escapism. Unlike other media, in video games, we become the characters we play, and, in a way, our characters successes are ours as well. This was the premise behind the video: take a protagonist with a hard life and have them escape into a happier world of video games.”
