Following their music video for London based electronic artist Toob, Mr Kaplin has again teamed up with Jake One (aka Toob's) new band, flies+flies for the launch of their debut EP 'Bad Crab Hand'.

Inspired by the work of André Kertész, directors Robert Glassford & Daniel Zucco used the video as a playground, combining lo-fi techniques with CGI.

Building a rotating light rig out of scrap bits of wood and cheap electrical appliances they created a live action base from which they could disrupt the composition with symmetry and overlaid, tracked CGI and 2D Graphics.
