To Build A Home

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Music Videos / Music Videos / 2009

The budgets for two separate animated promos, 'To Build a Home' and 'Breathe' were combined to create one long-form live action promo. Spanning both tracks, the film takes its cue from the shared lyrical themes of love and loss, the narrative following a couple fulfilling their dream of retirement to the remote hills of the countryside, albeit fleetingly and with tragic motivation. The hybrid format won the promo a special screening on Channel 4, as well as both a nomination at the UK Music Video Awards and screening among features at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
