The Sacred Egg deliver this unique ‘eye control’ promo for Amplify Dot’s Get Down, where the artist’s eye movement controls the angle of the shot.

Mixing furious staccato performance edits with animation snippets and stills, The Sacred Egg drive the thunderous soundtrack to excellent effect.

“We wanted to do a performance video where someone’s eyes controlled the position of the camera” explain the directing collective. “We shot with around fifty cameras – that made our lives a little tricky on the day and made our editor’s life kind of hellish afterwards…

“Kelly – thanks for keeping going even after your eyes began to swell up.”
