Watch the Debut Episode of the David Bowie-Inspired ‘InstaMiniSeries’
The 15-second premiere spans over the ensemble cast in a library, while one actor (it looks like it may be Rookie founder Tavi Gevinson) stares on. An instrumental portion of Bowie’s “Blackstar” serves as the clip’s score. You can watch it at the bottom of the page.
Prior to his passing in January, Bowie gave permission for his then-forthcoming album Blackstar (which arrived just two days before his death) to be used for the photo- and video-sharing social network’s latest “InstaMiniSeries,” which compiles 15-second episodes into a web series. UNBOUND: A ★ InstaMiniSeries will run for 16 episodes, and it stars Gevinson and actress Patricia Clarkson. Director Nikki Borges plans to take viewers on “a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork.”
Forthcoming episodes will air every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
