Alden Volney's video for Villagers' Occupy Your Mind is for Conor O'Brien's timely protest against Russian anti-gay legislation - as the Winter Olympics in Sochi begins.  

The video is a simple and stark idea which incorporates Alden's distinctive lo-fi/retro animation style - projected on Conor's face.
