MUSIC VIDEOS BY JORDAN WIPPELL & FRIENDS.


GREY FICTION - ALL THINGS COME TO AN END (2016)

Created for the release of the Grey Fiction's epic debut album, All Things Come to an End explores a sea of contrasting themes through atmospheric imagery. 

Using fragmented segments, the viewer is purposefully detached from the subject and forced to piece together the smaller parts of an often ignored whole. The video is intended to subvert the trope of female sexualisation commonly seen in the modern music video genre.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS - ERASE (2015)

This vid has so much impact simply for the use of dance and choreography. Classic never goes out of style; either does restraint.
— Black Francis (The Pixies)

One of the 3 winners of the 2015 'They Might Be Giants' Music Video Contest for their song "Erase".

Shot in Arizona, the music video features contemporary dance combined with experimental imagery.

Quote Black Francis (The Pixies): "This vid has so much impact simply for the use of dance and choreography. Classic never goes out of style; either does restraint. Clearly the dancers know what they are doing but are not asked to do back flips or any other tricks. I felt their prowess, yet, chuckled aloud and moved-head-to-beat, relaxed and entertained. Well done, Jordan. Other elements in vid also parfait."

HANDSOME FAMILY - FAR FROM ANY ROAD COVER (2014)

After my extreme obsession with True Detective, I decided to do a cover of the main theme by The Handsome Family and add to the hundreds of others on Youtube. I used a guitar and household objects to do the song and recorded the video in my shed. Took about two days... I also had a cold which explains the deepness. Enjoy!

TOM WAITS - CHOCOLATE JESUS COVER (2013)

This was my first attempt at recording a song and music video on my own. I shot the video using the abundance of mirrors that shrouded my household.
