Change. We all go through it, some in more extreme ways than others. Let´s take the protagonist of a certain music video trilogy for example:
He starts out as a woman sick with her actual life, and decides to escape in a meteor to another planet. On her way out, she camouflages herself as a man, then lands in a world of faceless people, tries to adjust to the environment, and ends up joining a group of strange beings that bring him to find a mask that will convert him into one of them. Haven’t we all been there?
It is here where we would like to invite you to what will be the last part of the Broken Glass / Yellow Fingers trilogy; the next phase of change, an end of sorts. Can we be certain that the wheel of change will ever stop, once they’ve been set in motion?
Our special FX department we went quite far to answer this question: We dunked the actors in a 400 liter tank of home-cooked slime, cast replicas of the main character’s face, hand and foot in silicone and wax, did stop-motion animations, had a 10-hour marathon session filming with the (very patient) band, and so on. These things that make movie-magic happen.
Though this is the last part of this trilogy of music-videos for The Megaphonic thrift, we’re not finished yet! Later this year we will release the entire film, comprised of all three parts in a new edited version featuring an all-new soundtrack by the band made exclusively for it.
So keep your ears, eyes and minds peeled for when the slimy butterfly “Broken Glass / Yellow Fingers: THE MOVIE” emerges from its cocoon.
