Last night at the LA Music Video Festival I got to see a breakdown of how this hybrid live-action/traditional cell animation music video was put together. The short answer: through painstaking work.
It pays off.
Director Warren Fu asked animation director Jeremy Polgar and his team to replicate the style of the late, great French comics illustrator Jean Giraud, better known by the pseudonym Moebius. Polgar delivered.
Fans of The Killers might also catch some narrative nods to one of their first big hits. Can you pick up on the thread?
