Kids Of The Apocalypse 'Better Life' by Ernest Desumbila
Here is a hugely ambitious but brilliantly realised spectacle of post-apocalyptic fantasy, where animation is weaved seamlessly with live action in a number of impressive set-pieces.
Stefan Storm - one half of the duo who comprise Kids Of The Apocalypse - tells Noisey that the "alternative universe" in the video, created by him and Barcelona-based director/animator Ernest Desumblia, mirrors our own. Evil corporations have ruined the world, but here, only super-powered kids can bring about a Better Life.
Storm mentions the likes of Terminator, Akira, Ralph Bakshi and 'the films of Amblin Entertainment' as inspiration. You could also add Fleur & Manu's M83 videos, and Megaforce's classic live action/animation mashup for Is Tropical's The Greeks. Pretty awesome, nonetheless.
