Filmmaker Jay Buim shoots a macabre music video in the iconic Clocktower Gallery space, filmed in collaboration with collage artist Judith Supine and the band Ed Schrader's Music Beat.
The music video follows the story of a world famous ballerina, who invites the three most significant men in her life to a secret performance at the Clocktower Gallery, which will be the last dance of her career. As the performance unfolds throughout the gallery space, the ballerina attempts to gruesomely murder all three of her guests.
The entire video is shot to the song Signs by Ed Schrader's Music Beat and Judith Supine's Clocktower installation provides inspiration for the haunting visuals. Buim captures some of the last footage of the gallery's historic thirteenth floor location in Tribeca, including beautiful scenes of the main space, roof, and clock face, before the Clocktower's closing in November, 2013.
