Emanuele Kabu – “Battle Lines” by The Helio Sequence Music Video
Another visually mind boggling music video from Emanuele Kabu this week – “Battle Lines”
by The Helio Sequence. You May remember that we featured another amazing animated video by him for The Helio Sequence called Upward Mobility in May. The one thing I really like about a lot of the music videos we feature on dotmogo is that they do not have big budgets but the level of creativity is so high – really squeezing as much visual stimulation as they can from the resources they have. ( I have no idea what the budget for this one is – but hopefully you know what I mean…)
This is an amalgam of a gloriously off-kilter colourised performance video and some very graphic graphics. It also helps that I really like the song of course – sounds like a more dreamy version of LCD Soundsystem (to me)
I’m so happy that these kinds of films are on the internet – as testing grounds for all sorts of ideas – what do you guys think…?
