Despite You – Music Video
From the Director:
This is the Official Music Video for “Despite You”, the debut single from Sylvia Stewart, starring Chris O’Bray and Dondre Octave. Lyrics/Performed by Sylvia Stewart.
Mental illness manifests itself in different ways in different people. Here is a look at two people who show varying degrees of mental instability. Some people self-medicate – drinking and drugging their way through the day while some people flirt with suicidal thoughts.
I slowed the pace of the visuals, purposefully, to give the viewer a sense of what it feels like to not be running at the same pace as the rest of the world.
I tried to give a face to those who often suffer in silence. I hope I succeeded .
