Although the song is a timeless hit now, this video is an amazing modern interpretation of Rocket Man song.
In his own interpretation of Elton’s iconic hit, Iranian filmmaker and refugee Majid Adin reimagines “Rocket Man” to tell a whole new story of adventure, loneliness and hope. The Cut, proudly supported by YouTube, invited filmmakers to create the first official music videos for three of Elton John’s most famous songs.
Magic and creepy!
Enjoy this weird video realised for “I Promise” song by Radiohead.
Some insights about the process:
This video was digitally shot and edited, and then printed out frame by frame on dot matrix printers, and re-scanned to achieve the final result. Conceptually the video was heavily inspired by the work of Canadian animation pioneer Norman McLaren – specifically his work “Pas De Deux“.
