Music Video for Bloc Party single One Month Off.
We love Ray Harryhausen, and a while back found a series of fairytales that he animated in the 1940′s using film stock he had acquired cheaply from the American army after the war. The themes of this song strangely brought these back to mind. So basically we acquired a number of the fairytale stories and re-edited them to the track so we had a strange narrative set in this animated fairytale world – a place inhabited by all the classic characters from Little Miss Muffet to Red Riding Hood. Taking the re-edited vintage animations, we then reanimated over these beautiful old stop-motion films, adding some ‘reality’ and some humour, so they lost that innocent feeling and meaning they once had.
