With his latest visual, Florida born, LA-based artist Nate DAE takes you through his life through a viewfinder. Co-directed by Kevin Doan, the video was shot solely on an iPhone 6 camera and then filmed through the viewfinder of a Sony Handicam.
“It started out with Nate wanting to use the Sony to film. Then I picked up the camera and recorded through the viewfinder on my iPhone to sample what the footage would look like. We both ended up really liking the look and I had the idea for the 3x3 layout,” Kevin Doan told us.
"This was the most convenient way to film since we didn’t have to go out and get any tape, nor wanted to spend the money. We could just shoot and upload on our phones. We also liked the small details that remained because of the way we shot, things like the battery dying or the zoom. "
"Ain't Worried" is the final product and both the audio and video for this one are incredible. Brockhampton's Matt Champion provides background vocals as Nate sings in a mellow tone over smooth Robert Hale and Kiko Merley production. The video then ends with a preview of another track, produced by frequent Kevin Abstract collaborator Romil.
