This project is a music video for the song Shower Thoughts by Lil Dip AKA Kaya Esmer. In the video, Kaya is seen in two different, grand locations. One location is a grim, graffiti covered bunker. It represents his depressed mindset in the present. During the video he wakes up on a beach where he rips off fabric covering his eyes that has been blinding his to happiness. The video features cinematic cutaways to a mysterious woman that Kaya is remembering. The shots of the woman are surreal and capture the uncanny visuals one might see in a dream.
