"The song was written about a sex club - everything is completely dark, you have to feel your way around. No one really sees me in the video, and if they do they're indifferent. I walk through this house where everyone is completely self-obsessed. This video will be part of a larger narrative of videos for the album Bent."

This video was animated for Boy: The Movie, a film directed by Cody Critcheloe. Cody is the nexus of art-punk force, the SSION. Last Summer he contacted me to animate the finale of his movie. It was to be executed in a style that was to be radically different from his previous body of work. To accommodate him, I dusted off my 3D software and set off to make something nuts.
The result was, as described by Alice Thorson of the Kansas City Star, a " phantasmagorical celebration of women". I am pretty happy with that summary.

Extra Special thanks to Gene Sung and Alex Dervin. Without their generosity I would have been stuck doing this whole thing on my laptop. Which would have sucked.
