To capture the spirit of their song “How Strange Is The Man”, the director, Helena Cotinier, split the video into two stages to depict the inspiration and the state of mind that the two characters experience. We created an abstract universe in motion graphics linking real world and fantasy so as to illustrate the different stages the protagonists go through.
Based on the soundtrack, we brought in a theme that we animated and structured. Initially, we played with black and white, geometric shapes to create a feeling of oppression. This very cold part is followed by a much more organic and colourful part representing madness.
