Sam Hill - 2nd July 2013

Pain Surprises are a French collective of producers, writers, filmmakers, musicians and designers that have worked on commercials, club-nights (featuring some pretty unusual acts), records and music videos.  It's safe to say that they are a pretty eclectic bunch! 

This video is pulls together some gritty undertones with some Escher-esque visuals to tell the story of a prostitute and her nefarious accomplice.  The interesting narrative here twists the timeline over itself in several places and there's some excellent work from hair, wardrobe and make-up as our lady of the night appears in a number of different fantasies for a range of doomed men.
