MUSIC VIDEOS 35: Radiohead - Pulk, Pull, Spinning

Inspired by a documentary on conjoined twins, Hardstaff decided to create a futuristic visual opus to emphasise Radiohead's fragile and emotive music. Hardstaff first captured in-camera photography of twins in a futuristic environment via motion control at The Mill, then spent three months on Photoshop, Illustrator and SoftImage to polish the look of the promo. Over 500 cuts blend together to create a succulent atmosphere of rich colours, detailed graphics, fonts and sounds.
