In the actual world, Modapit has seemingly come out of nowhere, presenting a parallel between his real-life side and the character he portrays within the media surrounding his music. Questions of being an trade plant are unavoidable, but when the music is nice, the purpose turns into reasonably moot.

Modapit launched their first single, “Dancing,” in January, and adopted it up lately with “Falling In Love” together with one more music video. The thought behind the undertaking is to current a cohesive and fascinating story that asks as many questions because it solutions, and to this point, that objective hasn’t been missed.

With the discharge of the music video for “Falling In Love” final week, we caught up with the video’s director, David Guillermo Borges, to ask in regards to the artistic path and precise means of filming the video — the way it got here collectively, the challenges they confronted capturing within the desert, and what the longer term holds for Modapit.

Along with Borges’ involvement, the video additionally options a powerful forged and crew, together with choreographer and performer Tiffany “Violet” De Alba who has labored with Cirque Du Soleil, Diddy, and Usher, in addition to Russel M. Corpis, Kendra Hagan, Dantriell Houston, Stephanie Brodie, and Bohdan Tkachenko.

When the Modapit group first despatched you the music, what was the primary idea in your thoughts as to how you’ll set the setting for the video?

The music was despatched very early within the course of, on the similar time Dancing was despatched. (And some others.) The objective was to create a single story line however nonetheless have music movies that felt very completely different from one another. We instantly knew we needed to shoot in a desert setting to create a drastic change from ‘Dancing,’ which takes place within the metropolis. All this stuff collectively added to the primary few concepts.

What number of completely different variations of the video did you draft earlier than you settled on the ultimate idea?

I wouldn’t say completely different variations of the video, however a pair various things modified as we began producing it. One of many issues was the wardrobe and make up. At first we thought of shopping for issues we felt these characters would put on, however Gabriella, our protagonist, and producer mentioned she’d be joyful to create the costumes herself. Finest choice we may have made, she handcrafted each single costume and selected the colour purple to characterize love. One other factor I’d say modified was the story line and the place within the video sure issues occurred, making the ultimate undertaking much more fascinating to look at than our first reduce.

Clearly the being within the sky is supposed to characterize Modapit — who do the dancers characterize? The motorcyclist?

In our story to this point we all know Modapit has one thing to do with the “spaceships”. The motorcyclist is the principle character for our earlier video Dancing, she’s been on a quest of discovering the “actual” Modapit, who she believes has solutions about what occurred to her sister. She has introduced the masks of somebody that was in all probability an impostor to this group of just about a non secular cult in hopes of being accepted into this place floating within the sky. I consider the dancers characterize our connection to artists. The motorcyclist would characterize us making an attempt to turn into part of the music scene. Modapit would characterize a unique form of artist, one which I consider isn’t after fame or fortune however extra about getting folks collectively.

What was the capturing course of like out within the desert so far as working round climate and lighting?

The climate in Vegas was unimaginable once we landed, however a pair days earlier than the shoot it began to get actually chilly and moist. We had about 15 folks booked for this, a scary feeling considering you’d need to reschedule. However by some means just like the beam of sunshine shining out of the modaship, the sky opened up that morning for just a few hours permitting us to movie the dance a part of the video, solely to get impossibly chilly that afternoon. Name it luck, or a blessing however I consider this video was speculated to occur that day. I do love Vegas and might’t wait to come back again in Might for Moda’s first efficiency.

Is that this story over?

The story isn’t over, we’ve but to essentially meet the sister of our primary character, who was teased within the What’s Modapit trailer. We additionally need to present folks what it will appear like if our primary character met the actual Modapit and bought solutions about her sister.
