We’re very excited to release the Flow of Creation video today on Halloween. The film originally premiered as a live visual for Celestial Son‘s concert on May 19th in Copenhagen this year. It was a particular treat to experience Celestial Son live, and see all the visual works presented at their show. The Flow of Creation was shot entirely in Stop Motion, and parts of the opening sequence of this film first appeared in Kilt Spirit, and has been expanded to the present film. A few shots in this film also previously appeared in the Figment Notebook, which we hope to release in the not too distant future. I am as always very lucky to have such amazing collaborators: Laura Beckmann, Chris Frandsen, Kindred Lansdown, Ted Haler and Cora Ripatti all made incredible contributions to what is often a painstaking process in shooting these stop motion works. And of course creating this film with Celestial Son’s amazing music is always a privilege and a wonderful collaborative experience. This is our fourth collaboration, and I am particularly excited about releasing this video to this epic music track. You can see the film below. Dedicated to F, in memoriam…
October 31st. Celestial Son music video featuring performances by Laura Beckmann, Chris Frandsen,Cora Ripatti, Ted Haler and Kindred Lansdown.
Our music video Death Wish, the third single taken from Celestial Son’s excellent album Saturn’s Return, is out today. Featuring performances by Rasmus Sjøgren (Divide and Conquer, All I Ever Wanted), Soren Castellanos (Monkey King), Cora Ripatti (Monkey King), and Chris Frandsen (Ligature Legislation). I am so lucky to be surrounded with such talented artists, and grateful that everyone was willing to take on this challenging, exciting shoot. Every character featured in this video has appeared in a previous stop motion film of mine, and we felt we wanted to try and push the envelope this time. Shot entirely in stop motion (over 17,000 stills in total were taken during shooting). This video was shot simultaneously with All I Ever Wanted (a 6000+ stills shoot), over a two week period. Additional photography was completed over a 4 week period. Saturn’s Return is out tomorrow! Go get it! See them live somewhere near you soon!
An exclusive and an article on the excellent Bands of Tomorrow site: ” Celestial Son release a beautiful, harsh video with a surprising ending” (In Danish) here
”Når man har set sommerens mesterstykker af videoer fra bandet, er forventningerne til den tredje video i rækken tårnhøje. Videoen til nummeret Death Wish lever dog ikke kun op til forventningerne – den overgår dem.”
On their facebook page, Celestial Son have just given an update on the Death Wish music video:
”So today we were supposed to present the next music video for the track Death Wish. The video is all ready to go but unfortunately due to some unforeseen circumstances we have been forced to push the premiere a little while.
But fear not, the plan is to premiere the video next week before the big release concert on Friday the 11th. at JAZZHOUSE.
More info and the exact date will follow soon.”
