Director for Momoko “Maintainers” Music Video

I wanted to create a music video that explores topics of labor, sexuality and cultural assumptions of women. I drew inspiration from contemporary artist Kawita Vatanajyankur whose work is unavoidably compelling and perplexing to watch. The result is something that dances between the expectation of the viewer and the deconstruction of these expectations, resulting in provocative and beautiful carnage.
“The music video, directed by Jillian Mackintosh, creates a bold, colorful vision for the track–complete with artfully captured fruit, spastic choreography and some very chic fits.” - Indie Current
“We love the energy and boldness of the direction in the video for “Maintainers”. Also, how tongue-in-cheek it is, and both entertaining and unsettling at the same time. That feels somewhat a mirror of our current times…” - Kaltblut Magazine
