David Knight - 24th Feb 2016

Directing team Crooked Cynics, who have just joined new outfit RubberNecker, have added to their catalogue of slick, well-crafted videos with their second collaboration with London artist Rationale. It's a minimal performance piece stylishly enhanced with colour, camera movement and smoke. 


"Continuing the aesthetic from our last video with Rationale, we wanted to create a bold performance video that was a step up from Fuel To The Fire, while existing in the same surreal universe. 

"We wanted to create a bunch of cool setups using physical effects, which allowed Rationale to do what he does best on his journey into the mist!"
