Obstacles can sometimes pull us apart, but they can also create a force that binds us. This is the framework behind 'Take Your Time,' a raw and powerful performance art piece. The video explores the concept of time & relationships, by following a duet as they navigate complex obstacles and spaces. Thoughtfully planned camera work and choreography help to lock the viewer into the meditative feel of the song, while also trying to offer a unique sense of time. The result was a single 5-minute shot choreographed backwards. This gives the video a beautifully haunting, dream-like aesthetic when played forward. The video was directed by Natasha Adorlee Johnson, a dancer with ODC/Dance in San Francisco, and Max Sachar, a feature film animation manager at Pixar. The choreography was arranged by Natasha and performed by her group Concept o4. The original song "Take Your Time" was written and performed by Lender, a Bay Area based indie rock band.
