During a 'Let's Play' review of his favourite '90’s computer game, a man tells a story of heartbreak .
Guiding us through the space simulator Nomad X, he offers hints and tips on gameplay, losing the love of his life
...and why, yesterday, he got punched in the throat.
Hereby we would like to beat the drum for Happy Camper's new music video The Daily Drumbeat!
The Daily Drumbeat is a sunny song but it's lyrics hold a dark threat 'The drumbeat will beat you up'.
It inspired studio Job, Joris & Marieke to make a dark and sinister animated music video.
The story is set on the rooftops of a big city, where a group of innocent creatures is trying to keep up the pace of a fatal game.
Studio Job, Joris & Marieke previously worked together with Happy Camper on the first music video Born with a Bothered Mind and on the short film MUTE.
A homage to Palm Springs that I've been working away on whenever I got a free moment over the past few months. Very much inspired by this gem: youtube.com/watch?v=MNu_MY7zwzs
The song is 'PS I love you' by Bobby Vinton, with a snippet of 'Route Nationale' by Philippe Pares' at the beginning!
We're 'Happy' to have been able to put some Animade magic into this little gem for G Star Raw C.V. and Glassworks Amsterdam. Enjoy!
