The next stage of Chris Milk's visual interpretation of Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi's Rome album is on the face of it, less complex than the interactive project 3 Dreams Of Black.

Milk has collaborated with animator Anthony F Scheppard again and, with Jack White on vocal duties on Two Against One, it gives full rein to Scheppard's extraordinary drawn-animation style. But according to Chris, its part of a bigger feature project - and also has an interactive element.

"Myself, Brian (aka Danger Mouse), and the producers Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine) and Megan Ellison (True Grit), are currently developing the Rome project into a theatrical feature film. While the video for Two Against One is hand-drawn cell animation, the film would be live action.

"The music video is essentially the fever dream of the antagonist of the story. It's mostly his backstory, his life before the tale we see in the movie. If you have a fast computer with Chrome installed you can also see the interactive lucid dream of the protagonist at www.Ro.me. These pieces are sort of narrative breadcrumbs that lead you to the eventual larger story. More to come soon."
