Will Sweeney and Steve Scott have teamed up to co-direct this trippy new video for Birdy Nam Nam. Made entirely in Flash and After Effects in a little over a month with a completely open brief given to the Directors by the band, Parachute Ending is a stand-alone sci-fi short inspired by the likes of La Planète Sauvage (Fantastic Planet) and other vintage sci-fi references. It’s altogether surreal and mysterious with amazing illustrations and animation for this wordless synth-driven song. Totally digging it!
Update: Vimeo version here.
Thanks to Collin for the tip!
