In 2016, Smite Pictures teamed up with long time collaborator Brittany Ellis to bring her EDM single 'SCORPIO' to life. Inspired by her own emotional claustrophobia, Brittany and Justin chose the visually evocative backdrop of the Mojave desert to tell her story. Nestled at the foot of the Sierra Mountains, the quaint but ominous Rustic Oasis Motel was the perfect setting to externalize Brittany’s astrological musing on love, loss and artistic actualization.
