Russ Chimes film trilogy

In order to help promote musician Russ Chimes’ new EP, “Midnight Club,” 23-year-old filmmaker Saman Keshavarz has skillfully directed a three-part series detailing the kidnapping of a beautiful young girl and the lengths her boyfriend goes through to rescue her. Using some very quick cuts, reverse narrative techniques and a muscle car, the films move fast, have plenty of style, and complement the music well. Music and film make for
a natural pairing and the combination is quite successful here. The concept of dividing
a 15-minute film into three pieces with cliffhangers begging you to tune in the following week is a nice marketing tool that keeps you watching and also serves as an effective way to convey the artist’s personality and character.
