After his utterly completely bonkers video for Photoshop Handsome, Everything Everything frontman Jon Everything takes the directing reins again for Final Form, with Phil Tidy again producing to create some more impressive self-distortions, through a combination of in-camera projections and subtle 3D.

Shot on Red MX and a variety of weird lenses, in a space where the inside temperature never rose above freezing,the band performed and then for parts of the day had these shots reprojected over themselves to create some arresting images. The 3d post elements were supplied by Adam Comiskey at Pew36 and evolve from single cells to see John Everything as a Chromosomic mask syncing to the track.

"The band wanted a distorted visceral version of themselves with the primordial ooze and contorted projections to convey a discomforting evolution," quoth Phil. "The freezing temperature helped create the claustrophobic menace with the decision that huddling for warmth in the round was creatively and thermically a good idea. It's good when a band are not interested in going to top shop with the stylist and want to help carry gear and generally be nice and creative."
