CONTENTed FILMS's award winning video for the track SENIOR LIVING taken from the new album SENIOR by RÖYKSOPP.
Genero.tv "CONTENTed's film was an obvious winner in this category for us. There was an idea of ‘Senior Living’ and not just a piece of music to sound-bed a narrative. It was well thought out and had a real sense of the off the wall humour that can often be seen in some of Royksopp’s projects. This piece has good characterisation that you could really buy into and the narrative was enthralling from the start to the finish of the piece. It also used the city as a great set for this story to help create a style for the whole piece."
DAVID KNIGHT founder of BUG and music video writer for SIGHT & SOUND film magazine: "... as good as anything I’ve seen in the past six months."
Screened at the BUG-show at the BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE, The RED HOT SHORTS Showcase at the ACMI in Melbourne's Federation Square, Darklight Festival 2011 and within the highly acclaimed Saatchi & Saatchi NEW DIRECTORS' SHOWCASE at the CANNES LIONS International Festival for Creativity 2011. Shortlisted as 'best international alternative music video' at the UK MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS 2011.
The video shoot took place on a small farm in Jeollabuk-do province, South Korea in February 2011. The storyline was conceived in response to the song lyrics which tell of an unrequited love or a longing that can’t be satisfied or consummated. We came up with the concept of a brother and sister who are twins who have grown up lived and worked together on their parents’ small farm. They are confused and disturbed by the fact that their closeness has developed into a kind of sexual longing that they know they must hide away deep inside.
"This is absolutely one of the best music videos I've ever seen. It's as disconcerting as the song, but a little more human, making it feel less spacey. It's really fucking brilliant--well done!" - Youtube viewer.
