A brace of skate video graduates with a true DIY ethic.
A surprising number of directors came up through the world of skate videos, so Jesse Lamar High and Nik Harper’s background has probably put them in good stead. Growing up in Oklahoma filming their friends skateboarding helped them hone their craft before they moved onto music videos three years ago.
Since then they’ve taken on the moniker LAMAR+NIK and experimented with all sorts of clever handmade techniques, approaching relatively obscure bands themselves with fresh promo ideas. Their flick book-effect video for Samantha Crain earned them some attention that landed them a job for the legendary Pixies without even having to pitch and they’ve since done a second video for the psychedelic rockers.
Now they’re seeking representation and, with a story and a reel like that, we think it shouldn’t take too long.
