Sam Hill - 14th Nov 2012

So how do you go about making a music video for the hugely influential Scott Walker Well why not try something as eccentrically preternatural as Walker's music Olivier Groulx has provided a fascinating array of scenes, shapes, slow-motion and looping sequences - featuring dancers, insects, flowers and shoes - to match Walker's wonderful 10-minute irregularity.

Olivier said: "It was a real privilege to work on this project with Scott. It's rare to work with someone who is uncompromising and meticulous while being very open to new ideas. There was an open dialogue throughout the whole process, I really appreciated that. And this was my first time working with Suze Olbrich and I thought she was fantastic."
