THANK YOU

Creating the Japanther music video has  been a very emotional journey for me. In doing this project I have come to realize that even though depression and anxiety isn’t openly discussed in our society, it is a subject that is very close to the hearts of people that have been affected by it either directly or indirectly. The amount of people that have reached out and shared their stories have been overwhelming, and I really appreciate all the love and support we have had from all our friends and family.

I want to send a very special thank you to all the people that watched our video, “Come Back Home” and bought a zine or animation cel for charity, and to Japanther for putting on an awesome show and donating their ticket sales from the night.

We are very proud to say that together we raised $900 for our chosen depression and anxiety charity, mentalpod.com. Mentalpod is a free podcast out of LA curated by comedian Paul Gilmartin who records interviews exploring mental illness, addiction and depression, especially among creatives… Check it out, it’s amazing.

I really hope our small donation will help people silently struggling with depression and anxiety, to reach out for help and know you are not alone.

Special thank you to Noisey, Vice Magazine, Juxtapoz, The Blackmail, Monster Children, Color Magazine, Bleachblack, and Fecal Face for all your love in helping us get our video out there.

And last of all I want to say thank you to my husband, Kirk Dianda for being such a huge inspiration to me everyday. I just adore you.

In memory of Beau Velasco – may you rest in peace homie.

Thanks again for all your love and support everyone!!

With love xa

ANIMATION CELS FOR CHARITY

These are the one-of-a-kind animation cels from the Japanther music video “Come Back Home”. The music video was made with the classic stop-motion style, where each frame is cut out of paper and shot, then moved and shot again until it resembles a moving image.

There are 15 different animation cels available, and each is unique (1 of 1). The cel comes framed and signed by the moi, and also includes a limited edition ‘zine. The ‘zine features still frames from the music video, and photos by Ian Vanek from Japanther.

Money from the sale of the animation cells and ‘zines will be donated to a depression and anxiety charity.

ABOUT THE MUSIC VIDEO

In homage to Beau Velasco, Brooklyn Punk band, Japanther wrote the song, “Come Back Home”. The song spoke directly to our hearts, and so, Kirk and I were inspired to create a very special stop-motion animation for the music video.

On April 25th at The Smell in Los Angeles, the music video will be played, with a live set by Japanther and special guests, Boys Who Say No.

Vice Mag and noisey.com will be doing an exclusive global online launch on April 23rd.
