Living in place among artsy people, we concluded on same page, ‘Can’t Explain It’, during ideation. It is a contrast different stories that happen among every human in this life form. We used symbolism, and an indirect approach to express it visually. It is visual impression for a viewer’s perception which includes the directors. This video is directed by Amir Khan & Ishtiaq Hussain, along with one  of the best cinematographer Irfan Khan, who was dedicatedly committed & equipped with his gadgets. We had the idea, the whole team right in front of us.

Our concept was to show but couldn’t explain it. So we took one of a concept of the performers (Waleed & Ayesha), who recently did a performing art. It was an unexplainable & continuous sequence of a guy and a girl, who pass over each other & then the other one beneath it would pull the leg to drop her.

One of the concept was a box inside a box, which we can’t see but feel. It was idea of Ishtiaq, which was about expanding our limits.

One of the concept was on modern technology, which we all have feelings that’ll terminate human specie. It was the idea of Amir Khan.
