Synopsis:

Look at the Clouds
is part, an experimental film essay, and
a music video, built upon old found footage of family trips, science, and nuclear defense reels. It explores nostalgia as created memories.
A remembrance for what we haven't lived yet. A yearning
for what we wouldn't live, perhaps. A desire to be a different "persona" living a strange familiarity. But, how can we be others
if what we think is what we are? What If we can be others? Wouldn't that erase what we think now? If we can be others,
isn't nostalgia a memory of who we were during that second when we wanted to be a new us?
