Radiohead 'Lift' by Oscar Hudson

David Knight - 18th Sept 2017

Oscar Hudson's first full-length video for Radiohead arrives hot on the heels of his video for Young Martha, and it's another superb setpiece, that considering the name of the song, was just asking to be made.

Thom Yorke embarks on one of the most surreal lift rides ever, and in the process taps into our anxiety about and the alienating effects of high-rise living. As with Hudson's previous work, like Bonobo's No Reason and aforementioned Young Martha video, this is very largely executed in-camera.

All the scenes beyond the doors of the elevator are there, for real – only the lift display and buttons were added in post - an ingenious piece of design and organisation, and exemplary work by production designer Luke Moran-Morris, art director Mia James and their team. A very satisfying experience.
