Composition for a Clown. 2021. Directed by Blade Fonteyn.
Composition for a Clown is OVERLOOK’s first music video collaboration with Berlin/California based DJ and Producer Ani Klang. It’s another experimental quarantine project written by Blade, shot and produced by Nano.
The story was sketched out in April 2020 during the middle of the first COVID-19 lockdown. The story follows a clown as it tries (and fails) to adhere to the guidelines of how to have a ‘productive’ lockdown.
The collaboration between OVERLOOK and Ani Klang was born through the queer creative networks of Berlin. Blade first met Ani via a panel discussion on “Sexism in the Film and Music Industries” and shortly afterwards the two came together on Composition for a Clown.
Composition for a Clown is part of the film-collab EP released by Ani in February, you can download it here.
In order to adhere to COVID safety restrictions we kept the team super small. Music provided remotely by Ani Klang (she/her). Shot, produced and edited by Nano (he/him). Written, directed and acted by Blade (they/them). Art direction once again from Rodriga Cavalheiro (they/them). Edited by Lorea Arcelus (she/her).
