In Their Words: “I think it’s common for people to fall into or back into difficult relationships after great personal setbacks. They can give you a kind of escape from yourself. It gives you this mostly impossible puzzle of trying to figure out what it is the other person is missing, what you could give them to make them whole, then depriving yourself of it in the process. It’s projection for the sake of purpose, loving someone knowing that they will always disappoint you. Because wouldn’t you want them to do the same?
“[Video director] Austin Leih is just great. I love when a whole idea forms in a moment of conversation. This concept came out of one of my own self-deprecating career jokes and instantly fit into a wheelhouse we both share so we turned it into a three-minute horror film. That’s the kind of super natural/supernatural collaboration I love most at a speed with which I’m very comfortable.” — Caitlin Rose
