TITLE From the Jump
DIRECTOR Jin Keon
COUNTRY United States
The video “FROM THE JUMP” is created for British headwear brand KANGOL’s
spring summer 2021 campaign. To celebrate the new chapter of 2021 and convey
the brand spirit – KANGOL embraces a punk spirit & youth culture since 1938 from the British Military to the Beatles, to Hip-Hop, we use the concept “time warp” to
run through the whole video.
The story is starting with a teen sitting in front of a television, enjoying “future
nutrition”. While seeing KANGOL different eras’ images on the screen, he was
jumping into another space through time traveling, exploring and searching for his
self-identity in absolute time and space
To develop a retro-futurism aesthetic, the setting such as TV and furniture were
made in the real 70s. Aesthetics in this video direction hover between truth and
fantasy, past and present, virtual and physical. In 2021 our fears may not be going
away, but we will be more open to confronting or escaping them through a mix of physical and digital realities. The aim of this video is not just to send a message to
the audiences, but to construct a new reality, a new normal.
