co-directed by CHELSEA JADE and ALEXANDER GANDER

In the 7th (and most harrowing) video we have made together, Alex Gander and I decided to give physicality to the feeling of social imposition via various modes of warp. I always feel cumbersome in social circles in all senses - as a tall woman and as an occasionally alarmed brat (see: lyrics in a short scroll below) it's a constant negotiation between how I feel in my own body alongside how I imagine people are perceiving me. How big or small should I go for maximum acceptance? How much space should I feel comfortable taking up?

MICHAEL MCCABE 

Our male lead is a local interdisciplinary designer and casually excellent dancer

GEORGE CLARKE 

Our hand actor is surprisingly better known for his work in black metal band "Deafheaven" 

Plus, appearances by ALEX GANDER (Co-director), ROSABEL TAN (Producer) and STEVE GULIK (DOP)

Headstrong, heart weak

Taurus with an ego rising

I talk a lot of bullshit lately

‘Cause I’m way too proud

To really be seen

 

So I’m locked down, low key

Slinking through the parties

Defense ready

You say you’re surprised to see me

I say, “What are you, the party police?”

 

Fronting like I don’t have the time

But inside of me the crowds going wild

 

‘Cause I’m a Superfan

Love you like a Superfan

Act like I don’t give a damn

But really I’m a Superfan

Woah

 

I’m a Superfan

Love you like nobody can

Even though I treat you bad

Really I’m a Superfan

 

No I don’t speak sweet talk

Don’t know how to screen my bad calls

Lay awake and try to believe

That I don’t really mean to be mean

 

So, I only bully you

When I’m in a giving mood

Like, I like you 

But I like when you’re uncomfortable too

So now I’m acting off colour

Like it’s kind to be cruel

But you’re the ultramarine

To my Yves Klein Blue

I just don’t know what I would do

If you could be fanatical too

I’m a Superfan

(I can’t wait to see you again)

Love you like nobody can

(Lovin’ you like nobody can”

Even though I treat you bad

(You just don’t understand that)

I’m a Superfan

 

Treat em mean

Keep em keen they say

But I don’t know any other way

Treat em mean

Keep em keen they say

But I don’t know any other way

 

‘Cause I’m a Superfan

Love you like a Superfan

Act like I don’t give a damn

But really I’m a Superfan

Woah

 

I’m a Superfan

(I can’t wait to see you again)

Love you like nobody can

(Lovin’ you like nobody can)

Even though I treat you bad

(You just don’t understand that)

I’m a Superfan

Woah
