Throwing Shadows, Shawn Lee

In 2006, Ichikoo wrote, cast, filmed, directed and produced a music video for the track “Throwing Shadows”. Within a tight budget and a week timeline, Ichikoo interpreted the melancholic, confessional theme, by representing the artist as an old man. The central character mimes to the song’s lyrics, reflecting on his lonely yet bizarre existence. The films twist comes half way through when we realise he is living a double life as a male strippergram. Both melancholic, quirky and surprising, Ichikoo produced an uplifting film that has been shown on MTV and global music networks.
