In perfect timing for the American election, John Vincent Curry’s “Still The Same” video gets right to the point, using a minimalist approach to deliver a strong message. Curry and song/video producer Mitch Burman elected to use the simple power of black and white carried throughout the video which was artfully shot through the lens of Amir Valinia at AV1 productions. The strength of “Still The Same” is its subtle, creative approach which allows the message to resonate loud and clear, provoking thought about the current state of affairs in our neighborhoods, in our politics, the judicial system and rising immigration fears. Most striking is the black and white face paint applied evenly to each side of his face. The clip then flips the script and everything that was black is now white, and vice versa. It adjusts reality, painting a completely different picture of John Vincent Curry, but despite this, he is still the same person.
