After many months of work by the incredible Studio Doulzia, Open Mike Eagle and producer Paul White premiered their new animated short for Dang Is Invincible on Adult Swim’s Toonami last night. The song is from the album Hella Personal Film Festival.
Director and Doulzia founder Alex Pierre said of the video:
“Conceptually the video parallels Open Mike’s stream of consciousness and the narrative style of rap. The video follows Studio Doulzia’s Noul (the protagonist of their film concept Skeletonblood) moving through train cars in a New York Subway Q Train. Noul anxiously looks for a train car where she can feel at ease, her journey speaks to finding assurance and humor in the subtle unfamiliarities that exist within the atmosphere of intimate settings like train cars, that otherwise could make a person feel vulnerable. The song felt really visceral, and we wanted to capture that as much as we can visually.”
