The objective for this project was to use the funding provided by FACTOR Canada to effectively promote Teen Daze’s song “First Rain” through a beautiful music video.


I conceptualized a plot of the video by studying the song and the inspiration behind it, then formed it into a love story. I hired Kaayla Whachell and Craig Range of Nakasone Folk, to work alongside me and handle directing and shooting so I could focus on the logistics of producing, supervising the shoot and answering any questions regarding the story and the visual effects.


When a young woman takes a risk in falling for a mysterious stranger, the natural world falls victim to the forces of the supernatural.

This calming, yet intense music video places the viewer in a lush forest as they watch love bloom and be torn apart. Its sci-fi nature and symbolism does not hand everything to the viewer, leading them to think deeper and draw their own conclusions.
