Cole Collins recently gathered dancers Rebecca René Kelley (also the choreographer), Olivia Satcher, Crystal Conway, and Joshua VanderVeen for the filming of a video for his single, “For Ourselves.” Directed by friend and currently New York City-based Levi Adkins, “For Ourselves,” the video, was conceived by Collins himself.

“The concept/vision for the video was to tell a re-imagining of the myth of the sirens in Greek mythology, where people are seduced into their destruction, through movement rather than sound,” says Collins, who co-produced the video and recruited the “sirens” from Anderson University, where they all study dance or acting.

That’s also where the video was shot — all filmed by Micah Taylor with Electric Soul Productions, which is based out of Greenville. Makeup and costumes were done by Ashlyn Uribe and Jenni Baldwin.
