Glass Animals

Glass Animals "Tokyo Drifting" (rubberband., dir.)

A multi-media video that's inspired by 90's-fighter-video games, stop motion animation and comic books.

rubberband., directors:  "We had a lot of fun taking outdated processes (everything from 16mm long exposure stop-animation to step printing) and blending them together in a relatively post heavy way. There’s a lot of vfx in the video that you wouldn’t notice outright. We sort of loved the idea of taking what most people would consider laughably old school and bringing it to life with people who are used to working with slick, CG heavy imagery. We just wanted to make something that translated all these influences and references into something original. And we feel pretty good about where we landed.

However long you plan to shoot stop motion, we’d recommend making it longer."

Glass Animals "Agnes" (Eoin Glaster, dir.)

Glass Animals lead singer Dave Bayley straps himself into a human centrifuge for their latest video Agnes directed by Eoin Glaister.

Eoin Glaister, director: “Agnes is, probably, the saddest song Dave will ever write, and so this video required a sensitive approach.  In searching for ways to explore the weight of grief I remembered my grandfather used to perform tests on a human centrifuge, a machine used by pilots for g-force training. There’s a scene in Moonraker where an assassin tries to kill Bond in one. Only Roger Moore faked it. Dave didn’t. Essentially it’s an extremely large bit of kit that spins around very quickly. As it does so it subjects its occupants to increased levels of g-force. The faster you go, the heavier you become. On the day Dave described this feeling as like having an elephant sat on his chest. Whilst I doubt the validity of his reference point, I am really grateful that he threw himself into this so wholeheartedly. It was physically demanding and logistically nightmarish and I’m super grateful to all the excellent people that helped make it happen. It was emotional. Appropriately so."
