D-Sisive – …If Everyday Was Halloween (Short Film) [Video]

Tweet

Toronto, ON – “…If Everyday Was Halloween” is a short fimed inspired by the new D-Sisive mixtape, Asian Elvis. It’s a short documentary encompassing the music and writings of Derek Christoff (aka D-Sisive), juxtaposed with visuals from Collingwood, Ontario’s Elvis Festival. In addition to D-Sisive’s music, from the now available Asian Elvis, the piece is scored using the beautifully haunting ballad, ‘Words’, recorded by Minnesota’s Low. Watch the video below and find more information, including a breakdown from D-Sisive himself, after the jump.

A message from D-Sisive

This was all a coincidence.

One amazing coincidence.

Asian Elvis was recorded, waiting for its release. I was reminded of an annual festival that takes place in Collingwood, Ontario, a 2 hour drive from my home in Toronto. Elvis Fest! I had to go. It was important for me to spend a day taking in the surreal fandom of Elvis Presley. My obsession was sky high, spending over a month watching documentaries and youtube videos on the King, getting my mind prepared for the writing of the new record.

This would be the perfect closing celebration.

Dan Jardine, who I’ve worked with in the past, brought along his camera. You never know what kind of funny shit we’ll see. We went beyond funny. Weird. Surreal. Strange. Romantic. Emotional. It was a heavy day and fortunately, Dan captured it all.

I’m just as proud to present this documentary as the actual mixtape itself. I can’t thank Dan enough. He’s an amazing talent and I’m fortunate to be aligned with such a great artist.

I hope you like this.
