Kamaal Williams

Hold On

The Project

Inspired by iconic jazz performances from the late 1950's, we set out to create a timeless, yet contemporary film for Hold On, the lead single off of Kamaal Williams new album, Wu Hen.

Shot on 16mm black and white, we deconstructed the format by playing with angles and mirrors, transforming the artists into abstract figures, thus illustrating the distance you can feel towards your reflection and sense of self.

“The lyrics are about reflecting on yourself and removing everything that you think makes you, you. But really without it, all you are is your truest self.”
