Chris Orrick – Self-Portrait

Chris Orrick - Self-Portrait

Chris Orrick shares his new ‘Self-Portrait’ visual.

Introspective writer and musician Chris Orrick recently released his album Portraits – twelve snapshots of life focused on identity. The album opener, ‘Self-Portrait‘, observes that when trying to paint a portrait it never looks right if you force it. So following his own advice, Chris offers a relaxed take on everything that makes him up. From insecurity to overeating, from inner beauty to spending habits, Orrick dissects himself with surgeon-like precision and a poet’s eye. The track, produced by Nolan The Ninja, is a fitting scene setter for the album. Today, Chris unveils the MildWest produced visual companion.

Director Malcolm Critcher describes the visual concept best: “This project was comprised from 2 days of filming, and 4 months of post production. Every single collage you see was hand made, scanned, and edited into the project. One collage per frame, 24 collages per second. From vintage playboys, to the junkmail I got each day in my mailbox, I wanted to create a moving tableau of how we are sold to as Americans, how we see ourselves, and how we see each other.”
