Friendly Fires’ Skeleton Boy by Clemens Habicht

Those funky St. Albans lads Friendly Fires are back with the funked-up Skeleton Boy, and a new video by Clemens Habicht, who recently created some splendid live visuals for Clinic.

Those funky St. Albans lads Friendly Fires are back with the funked-up Skeleton Boy, and a new video by Clemens Habicht, who recently created some splendid <a href="http://www.nexusproductions.com/938/clinic_montage.mov">live visuals for Clinic</a>. Those visuals capture various strange objects, usually in motion, in a kind of cool portraiture - and one of the materials Clemens used in his Clinic film plays a major part in this video: tiny polystyrene balls. Rather bravely, the band are performing wearing black suits with only their faces visible. The balls, in a wind-machine assisted ball-storm, then give them stick-man bodies, followed by, appropriately, full skeletons. They start looking like motion-capture characters, but it's all done in-camera. "Taking out all the excess information and concentrating on their movement through this pseudo-motion control, meant we could focus on the performance dynamic of the band, especially lead singer Ed's great dance moves," says Clemens.
