Emotional - Living in xtc
We created the music video for Emotional's track Living in xtc.
Inspiration for the video came from reading John Wyndham's 1960's novel 'Trouble with Lichen'. In the novel, a cure for aging is found based on a chance discovery when a scientist drops a sample of lichen into milk.
The video plays on this story by attempting to subvert traditional beauty advertising with it's over-use of cgi liquid effects and overtly kitsch costume design (inspired by famous porn actress Ilona Staller).
