“Level Up was inspired by an urge to construct a story in a limited amount of time. In this culture with everyone moving so fast, I challenged myself telling a story as directly and efficiently as I could”, explains Emsee.

In the same manner, the upcoming artist also wants his audience to know the following cinematic elements that took place to create such a masterpiece.

“Matt Rush is a fantastic videographer who helped tremendously throughout the video process. His input helped amplify the song’s central ideas of pride, betrayal, and egoism”, states Emsee. As a fun fact; a decent portion of the film took place in a mysterious hotel.

“The filming process took a whole day in an old hotel. I was kind of nervous someone would call the cops because when we wrapped up filming, I walked out the motel room with a blood splat shirt and a bottle of 1942 (Haha)”, confirms Emsee.
