David Knight - 21st Jan 2014

Burning House is a project by Hervé Salters (General Elektriks) and Chief Xcel (Blackalicious) and another Salters - Arno – directed the superb video for their track Post Party Stress Disorder, out in the latter part of last year. 

It's a lo-fi, hand-drawn tale of a cool dude arriving at a party that becomes a very trippy scene indeed - so he gets in the spirit, with some brilliant dancing... 

The video is animated by Joseph Pierce – himself director of award-winning shorts Stand-Up and Family Portrait, and the video for Enter Shikari's Thumper - in his wonderfully impressionistic rotoscoping style.

Faces and heads change - or disappear entirely – but crucially Arno and Joseph don't generally mess with movement - so the party always feels authentic. And they seamlessly recreate the wonderful moves of dancer/choreographer Olivier Casamayou. A complete treat.
