MUSIC VIDEOS 38: Rob Dougan - Clubbed to Death

It's easy to forget you're watching a music video in this creation, which bears a striking resemblance to Terry Gilliam's Brazil. Picture a hot dusty South African town. A giant man is protecting a child. As he runs through streets, the camera struggles to keep up. Cars and people are swept backwards as the director presses rewind, playing with the motion of the film. Colour filters are used to create a heightened sense of reality in some scenes, while others fade away to grainy sepia.
