David Knight - 15th Oct 2013

In Andrew R Blackman's video for The mOOnbird's Olaf, fragmented vignettes of nightlife are intercut to create a film about loneliness and a weird zeitgeist. 

In an open late laundromat, a girl stares so intensely at a tumble dryer that her nose bleeds. In a dive bar, an aging transvestite smokes cigarettes contemplatively before dancing with the juke box. In a speeding sports car, a girl rides shotgun & an emotional roller coaster, while the guy behind the wheel remains oblivious to her. In the club, the empty eyes of a seducer scan the crowd, until they catch those of a nameless younger woman. And a character with no eyes tries to navigate the world blind to him.
