The video for Australian band Tame Impala's superb Feels Like We Only Go Backwards, and an extraordinary achievement in animation - designed and directed by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling (aka British directing team Becky & Joe, who are also part of the This Is It collective).
It's made up of over 1000 separate plasticine collages, all made by hand. These collages work together to create a mesmerizing accompaniment to a fantastic track – and you can actually now buy actual plasticine frames from the video for £10 each (find out more at beckyandjoes.com/tame-impala/).
