LIKE LIGHTNING / MUSIC VIDEO
I got the chance to get contacted by Foals to write and direct the music video for their song Like Lightning.
The idea was to turn the defining global issue into an uplifting call to arms, courtesy of a furry chap called George. I used the theme of the song to tell the story about George, held captive by a junk food-addicted coach potato, who escapes his captor to lead a popular uprising against ecological disaster.
Forest Gump movie was a source of inspiration for this video clip by making of George a committed personality to fight against global warming and pollution. I thought using the gorilla, a wild animal as the saver of our planet and humanity was pretty ironical.
