I recently posted a video from newly reborn Appleonia. No, not the progeny of Prince and 80s hottie Apollonia, but the transcended Jessica Chapnik Kahn, who “after years of mortality, decided to give birth to something else: herself. As Appleonia.” Her first video “Precious” is beautiful, striking, fun, and a little crazy when the apples start rolling and the darts are being thrown at her head.
Appleonia is now giving us a pensive look at “God”, with the help of filmmaker Penny Vozniak. Penny and Appleonia add radiance to the already beautiful songs and Appleonia’s dazzling voice. Making a string of homemade videos together, the pair quickly became a two-woman show, acting as director, producer and crew while concocting frenzied one-shot ideas that often required life-threatening trial and error (all documented, of course). If you don’t believe me, go watch the video for “Precious” and the outtakes/making of the video.
Take a look at “God” and the making of the video “Shooting God.” I almost wish they would have kept a bit more of the frolicking in the field look to the video that we see in the making of; however, I do love the idea of adding a little ode to Kali in the mix. Either way we get a glimpse of who Appleonia is, and we like what we’re seeing. Enjoy!
