Hercules and Love Affair - You Belong (Dir. Kris Moyes)
'You Belong' (EMI/DFA) from album 'Hercules and Love Affair' features debile disco druid darkness, produced by The Directors Bureau.
I like this, its like a current version of pump up the jam clip, but would have enjoyed it more if the narrative was clearer - ie less about the dancing and singing and more about this world below and above. The simple animations, black and white gradients etc seem strong but occasionally remind me of a Myres fashion campaign. The magnet and rocks stuff is nice does make me think Moyes was showing something he would have done for this boys in love...
i really enjoyed watching andy butler's character and his sugar & gravel world and i wish antville could vote on best costume/wardrobe, cuz this is one of my favorites.
saam like without the photography. This is probably hip but it leaves indifferent.
moyes rocks but this is boring to watch.
Annoying editing/greenscreen performance is a departure from the usual moyes precision. Some nice visuals in there, magnetic diagrams are a good idea. Just feels messy though.
Also feels like he's jumped ship from the presets (although he is brother to kim) because the dark sections feel like the aesthetic he has used for some of their videos, and he didn't direct the last video for this boy's in love. Just an observation... any thoughts?
Is this the same guy that did that Presets video? This is a half idea with very bad execution.
the girl playing the glasses is a dead ringer for natalie portman.
I couldn't get into this 'un really! That Naomi? girl looks like she escaped from a Xena episode....
mediocre stuff one after another. yawn. next?
It took me a while but i think i like this. The green screen dancing stuff reminds me of 90's madonna videos. I preferred the dark underworld stuff more and the clip could have been more successful if the narrative was clearer. More then anything it seems like this video is almost 'classic music video' in structure and is definitely more complicated then moyes's normal exploitation of one trick.
