VITAMIN "Giving It Up"

2015 / Sony Music UK

Idea: "The band as a gang. They're taking turns filming each other with an old vhs-camera as they're walking through an esoteric environment occasionally lip-syncing. Distortions start coming out of their hands. Soon they start to throw distortions at each other (in a friendly, mocking around kind of way). Beautiful, wild and weird distortions. Both gang and environment get twisted, sheared and smeared by these colourful and extremely good-looking distortions. The gang get more and more intense, so does the distortions and the whole picture is soon one great twisted mess of colours and movement. The camcorder drops to the ground and breaks. The end."

Mooji "Medley"

2015 / Kram Records

Idea: "A young woman in a car. She lip-syncs to the male voice of the track. We cut back and forth from her in the car and her dancing weirdly on the road. Always lip-syncing. She carries a petrol can and starts to pour it over the car. She lights it up. She keeps dancing through the smoke filled desert."

"INNIXI"

Social Skills "It's Invisible"

2014

Idea: "We’re in a bright lush leafy landscape. High grass. Closeups of a glass-like material. Reflections and refractions of light dances as we move around it. We start to sense something behind the surface. We soon recognise the shape of a human hand, foot, leg, head. We see there’s a man inside. He floats inside this giant crystal shape. He’s reflected and distorted throughout the whole crystal. The crystal is slowly dripping like it’s melting. In the meantime a woman is following a tiny stream of water that flows in the opposite direction. The woman picks up pieces of crystal in the water. She see glimpses of the man in them. In the distant, behind the trees, the sun reflects in something shiny."

Super8 & Tab "No Frontiers"

2014

Idea: "A man and a woman in a desert. They start to shoot at each other with pretend guns. (Now hold on, in a very serious, non-comical way that is.) They are in absolute war with each other. Live or die. The weapons get bigger and heavier. With every hit they are thrown to the ground and the desert increasingly turns in to a smoke filled dusty battlefield. They finally pull the imaginary safety pins out of their hand grenades with their teeth. And throws them at each other. In quick close-ups of their eyes, we can see the reflection of grenades approaching through the air. Black. The end."

TARTARUS

2012

"An artistic and meditative portrayal of a harmonious population affected by an attempt to civilize them. In Tartarus the directors David Strindberg and Johan Bring explores indigenous creatures, crusades and civilization. We despise indigenous culture while we live, brainwashed by what we believe is science, in a self-constructed hell."
