Dama Scout get animated for ‘Suzie Wong’ video

Paper fasteners at the ready…

Dama Scout have gone and done a reverse Pinocchio for their new video.

It’s for ‘Suzie Wong’, the lead track from their forthcoming self-titled EP (out 10th November on Hand in Hive), and features the trio as paper puppets. Paper fasteners at the ready.

Of the video, the trio say “Our love of film and performance is a key part of the song. We wanted the video to parallel themes of drama, acting, being somebody else (both on and off stage).

We thought it’d be a great idea to run with this literally and build an actual stage & minimal set with puppets of ourselves performing the song. The simplicity of white, in the set and later on ourselves is a classic canvas synonymous with performance - specifically mime artists. We also had no money or budget and lots of cardboard lying around so we got some cheap white paint and made a video…”

Watch ‘Suzie Wong’ below.
