The ambitious footage makes use of miniature models to create an immersive new universe inspired by 1950s aesthetics.
“I knew from my first listen that we had to create a world unbound to convention and reality,” says the film’s director Max Jedwab. “I also knew it had to use miniatures, and evoke the uncanny. Using miniatures opened up endless possibilities, and freed us to work in a way radically different to my previous videos.
“We really wanted to create a utopian space, and stole tonnes of references from ‘50s greeting cards, architectural models and classic MGM stage designs. We had an amazing team working on it: William Wyndham’s input definitely elevated it, he designed the aquarium scene from scratch, and his other touches throughout add so much to the wonder of it all.”
