Life over the rocks. A stylized visualization of a climber's attempt to overcome the physical and mental barriers while on the rock.
My excerpt from Moja Gear:
I know there will be plenty of climbers criticizing this piece as style over substance and that's totally fine. I get it, there is a climbing video normalcy that people are used to seeing. And there are some great companies out there doing amazing work that do the climbing community justice. I'm not taking anything away from their content but I do feel that rock climbing on a pure level has a naturally aesthetic and intrinsically artistic element to it that often gets overlooked in linear route climbing videos. I thought something highly stylized could not only capture the beauty of climbing but the mental aspect that words can't describe. And so came about "The Overlife". Feel free to hate on it but it takes much less effort not to.

The video for Fever Ray's 'Keep The Streets Empty For Me', taken from the album Fever Ray, is directed by Jens Klevje and Fabian Svensson, a dynamic director duo in the field of artistic moving image. They are based in south of Sweden were they running the visual bureau Conjunction.se.
Fever Ray and the song Keep the Streets Empty struck us immediately with its fateful sound and images of abandoned suburbia begun to grow in front of our eyes. We wanted to continue the journey that started in the former videos and our ambition was to catch the feeling in a very direct and true way and create a video where dream and reality intertwine.
