Makeya Kaiser's entry into the
2019 Raw Vision short film competition
Makeya Kaiser's "Tribute to Whitney Houston" (2016) captures her deep love and appreciation for the pop icon, adding her own unique twist on Whitney’s famous ballad "I Will Always Love You."
Each scene is a hybrid of locations combining props and costumes inspired by Houston’s video catalogue with 3D paintings of people and places in Kaiser’s own life.
The result is a montage – weaving the celebrity with the fan, the private with the public, and performance with intimate moments.
Makeya describes the video as "a statement of her love for Whitney and Whitney’s most well known love song."
