Luke Bather - 26th June 2017

Doomsday is upon us in Simon Ryninks' video for Johnny Flynn. But unfortunately, not everyone agrees.

In an age of polarising opinions and post-truth, sometimes it's hard to see what's actually happening even when it's hurtling towards Earth at thousands of miles per hour. A taxi driver sees a meteorite on a collision course with Earth, but it looks like he's the only one who's worried about it. The video follows him as he manically scrambles through a city acting like nothing is wrong, trying to find anyone else who's as concerned as he is.

SIMON RYNINKS:

"Johnny has imbued In The Deepest with a sense of ominous dread which I've tried to visualise. The video's concept grew out of that, and a general feeling of anxiety. It's about finding hope in other people who share your worldview and see things the way you do."
