Our weekly exclusives move to a Monday, starting with this rather unusual short film-cum-music video from Los Angeles-based Aja Warren
Our weekly exclusives will be coming at you on a Monday from now on, and first up in the new slot is model, actress and singer Aja Warren, as we unveil the brand new short film she’s made to promote Revolution, a track from her debut album Misbehavin‘. The film is directed by Bryce Morgan and involves a “reincarnated love triangle”… we’d try and explain but you’re better off just watching it! Although this is the first time the video has been show publicly, it’s already won Best Music Video at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival, while Action on Film nominated it for Best Music Video and Best Musical awards.
Aja grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and is now based in Los Angeles, where she has a successful modelling and acting career as well as making music. Revolution, like much of her material, was co-written with long-term friend Mike Willis and Aja says of the video: “Revolution is a song about getting past all the ego that keeps us from sharing love with abandon. In the video we watch these three people try to find love lifetime after lifetime, always drawn to each other, but ego drives pulling them apart. When the thrill of the hunt and the desire to simply win overrides that feeling of loves abandon, our heroine decides she wants out of the cycle. It’s time for real love that comes from within, so she gives up her mortal fight and finds an ego-less love.
We’d say “think Tarantinto with a blues-tinged rock soundtrack”, but we never claimed to be movie critics! So what do you think?
