Strange Beast director team Parallel Teeth have explored an entirely animated direction for the new video for Ladi6's Beffy starring a main character inspired by Ladi herself.
Larz Randa 'Rangers' by Parallel Teeth
Kiwi director/animator Rob Wallace - aka Parallel Teeth - visually and playfully mimics the clever stream of consciousness that is his fellow Aucklander Larz Randa's rhymes in his poptastic Rangers single.
After a one day shoot Rob then painstakingly hand-drew the playful designs and animation that meld wonderfully Larz's performance - a process that was two months in the making.
"We had both been following each others work for a while. Since we both live in Auckland we thought we should meet up and do something. We had quite a few meetings building up to the shoot where we’d bring along things that had caught our eye. It really helped set the tone for the video.
"Working with Randa was great. We have very similar interests across the board and he was open to anything I threw out there, so it allowed heaps of room for creativity."

New Zealand singer/rapper Randa puts on a show in her music video for Fashion, created with Parallel Teeth - it's a playful, lo-fi and warped take on a traditional fashion film.
The man they call Parallel Teeth has devised a perfectly cool combination of live action and animation for Auckland, NZ artist Merk.
Plants grow, particles swim, lakewater ripples and all is well and good in this positively lovely visual directed and animated by Parallel Teeth, aka Robert Wallace.
