Horizon by Whitaker
Animated music video
An animated music video directed and animated by Joseph Russell.
The director’s vision for this clip was to immerse the viewer in a surrealist animated world and simulate an authentic vintage animation style. Whitaker’s inspiration for the song is a last day on Earth scenario, so Joseph incorporated mythological characters in a surreal apocalyptic wasteland, gathering one last time before their ultimate demise.
From the band –
“Our new clip! Welcome to Horizon. We wanted to re-create the world of after-school television we loved so much as kids. Our early 90s TV diet (which was mostly populated by 80s re-runs) consisted of what, in retro-spect, was some fairly strange and ambitious visuals – fantastic in their presentation. Our very talented film-making friend, Joe Russel, took this brief and ran with it. The result is the strange and temporary world of Horizon. We sincerely hope you enjoy.” - Ryan Meeking, Lead Singer
