From Kama Catch Me – “With Fiji entering an exciting time of transition as a nation and a people, we wanted to portray that delicate momentum as a new marriage. Not the happily ever after fairytale story of a marriage but the hardout clash, the teething problems, the highs and the lows, and all that no one ever wants to tell you about the beautiful chaos of love.”

From Kama Catch Me – “Where we are right now as a nation can be described as a situation in which everyone is desperately keen to move forward, yet sadly some are willing to fully let go of the past so they choose to keep a firm grip on it, and instead of building and contributing positively to the marriage it binds and restricts its growth. That space in-between the Old and the New is where this story takes place.

The black, white, and gold color palette represents the following:

Black: The dark past
White: The bright present
Gold: The hope of a rich and positive legacy for future generations to prosper in.”
