ACTIVE CHILD DEBUTS NEW SHORT FILM FOR “COLOR ME”
ACTIVE CHILD debuts a new short film for In Another Life track “Color Me” as part of a collaborative art project between the musician and acclaimed Danish director MARTIN DE THURAH. The film launches today at ColorMeProject.com, a dedicated website that serves as an interactive landing page for visitors to watch the new visual and create new content using exclusive imagery from the film itself.
Of the video, director Martin De Thurah says, “I wanted to make something frightening, and I know it is very hard. To create a film in which someone was physically penetrated by their own anxiety. In a gentle way, with a lot of love and the possibility of healing.”
In light of the film’s probing nature, De Thurah and team built ColorMeProject.com, a website that allows visitors to screen the film, find inspiration and generate new creative content. Visitors to the website will be invited to read excerpts from the director’s dreams, as well as create their own posters with visual assets from the film. Furthermore, it will be possible to buy the unique sculptures that Martin De Thurah made specifically for the film, the proceeds from which will be donated to Mental Health Foundation Denmark.
The project is the latest development in the wake of Active Child’s full-length major label debut In Another Life, which is available digitally, on CD and in vinyl format. The musician has recently released remixes from the album, including both the “Cruel World (Jim-E Stack Remix)” and “Painted Staircase (Joe Goddard Remix).” As visually creative as he is sonically, Active Child continues to celebrate the album’s release with his “Sun Rooms Series,” a collection of stripped-down performances of album tracks filmed outside the musician’s studio – watch his videos for “Cruel World” and “Color Me” here.
