Los Angeles based producer and singer/songwriter Franny London may have enough of what she needs but she's also incessantly after everything else. In her new cinematic video, directed by Ruby Lanet, London is surrounded by a group of actors who bring a painting to life and enjoy a lavish meal but couldn't make her feel more alone. In an email, she went into her inspiration for her debut single: "I wrote ‘Dining With My Head At The Table’ around the theme of wanting the one thing you can’t have when an abundance is available to you. But, in all honesty I wasn’t thinking when I wrote it."

Director Ruby Lanet spoke to the dynamic among the twelve actors: "I wanted each of the characters who came to life from the painting to feel like they had more of a purpose than Franny did at the dining table, so we created extensive character bios with a web of intricate histories, loosely inspired just as much by Greek myths we remembered to absurd family drama we grew up around in Los Angeles."
