Wannabe is about the feeling that there is always someone cooler, better than you and the endless circle this thinking starts. You think your neighbor is better, your neighbor thinks his neigbhor is, and the neighbor’s neighbor thinks you are better. In the video we created a world where two clones are constantly fighting and making up again, like siblings that both hate and love each other. Both fighting for their status, both admiring and envying each other and yet enjoying their company. This abstract world set in the glowing summer sun of Croatia’s landscape visualizes the absurdity of the dissatisfaction with one’s self and celebrates this feeling.
