For Mister Mellow, Washed Out’s third studio album and first for Stones Throw Records, artist Ernest Greene commissioned 10 animators and filmmakers to create a visual accompaniment to the album which spans all 12 tracks. Washed Out enlisted Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney to “host” a fictional TV program where he “premiered” the film and had on Washed Out’s Ernest Greene as a featured guest. The film premiered in Los Angeles at the Vista Theatre.

For the ambitious live production around the album, Washed Out worked with visual artist John King aka Timeboy (Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Flying Lotus) and Microsoft to bring the album visuals to life using Microsoft Kinect technology.
