The Weird Girls Project (previously here) creator, Kitty Von-Sometime, was approached by Converse China to produce a series of videos featuring the Fall 2012 Color Collection of their Chuck Taylor shoes. The videos were to follow all of the usual applications of The Weird Girls Project and, excluding the shoes, the video concept and direction had complete free reign. The three-episode series was filmed in China: the first at the Great Wall; the second at a high rise building just on the south side of the river in Shanghai; the last at an abandoned fake Disneyland theme park an hour outside of Beijing. All three contain spectacular imagery and the requisite Weird Girls weirdness.

Below is one of the videos, but if you like what you see here, there’s plenty more to check out on the website.
