Take a Trip with Stevie

//  03.18.20



This short dance film takes us into the mind of a daydreaming teenager. “Stevie” is a collaboration between Director Ante Kovac and Cinematographer Stuart Campbell.

Music can transform. And, who better to transform Stephanie, a high school teen living in suburbia, than the pulsing beats of LCD Soundsystem. As the music slowly overtakes her, Stephanie becomes Stevie – a punk, electro-disco club girl that is living in the moment. With a nod to the Spike Jonze ‘Drunk Girls’ music video, the band’s mascot sparks a journey that takes Stevie from her childhood bedroom into a dance odyssey.

With choreography by Alyssa Martin, performance by Drew Berry and VFX by Alter Ego, get ready to enter the world of Stevie.
