"Die Geheim - The Secret" Music Video Out Now!

video
"Die Geheim" is the final music video for Gerschweyn Matthews' "Die Probleem met Picasso" short film and album project. The track is recorded in Afrikaans, an off shoot of Dutch and German and is Gerschweyn's first language. Filmed by Paul Seeds, directed by Nikye Pennington and Produced by Tania van den Berg the video is very much inspired by the films of Remodernist Cinema Pioneer Jesse Richards well known for his avant garde filming techniques. This time round the young Picasso is all grown up and the video illustrates his possible demise as an effect of the Scientology Suicide incident explained in the other two "Die Probleem met Picasso" music videos; "Letter to Tom Cruise" and "Strategies of Retribution Regarding Devil Worship in The New World." "Die Probleem met Picasso" short film is currently in post and shall debut on the Austin Indie Film circuit shortly. Matthews' "Die Probleem met Picasso" short album is now available on iTunes.
