An ambitious, highly accomplished VFX extravaganza for Cut Copy’s new single Blink And You’ll Miss A Revolution by young director Emile Sornin – involving body parts of the Canadian outfit reanimated for the entertainment of indie rock-loving inhabitants of the Planet of the Apes…

“Emile has been working on this concept for a while, doing tests at home and at Division, and we were waiting for the right tune and band to present this idea,” says producer Jules De Chateleux, from Division Paris. “Finally it all made sense with Cut Copy, and then we developed the idea further to fit to the track. And full credit to the band who actually accepted having to sing on their knees, being pulled by the hair and all.”

The simian masks by Les Spada are worthy of the movies themselves, but this is really all about the vision and drive of Emile Sornin – clearly one to watch.
