Django Django 'Tic Tac Toe' by John Maclean
Django Django are back, with Tic Tac Toe, and a new video by regular collaborator John Maclean - borther of the bands's drummer and producer David.
In it, Vincent Neff leaves the band's caravan to have a cool, speeded-up English seaside adventure (it was shot in Hastings): a quick successful pool game, fish & chips, a trippy trip on the Ghost Train.
Some of the team involved in Maclean's first feature Slow West were involved in making this - including DoP Robbie Ryan who shot the video on 16mm, sped up in-camera. The result is classic Django Django, employing lo-fi VFX tricky, consistently entertaining and unpretentious.
"The film could be about the fading era of the beach arcades, time moving too fast, love and games, horror and happiness," says John Maclean. "But it is actually about a man who needs to go buy a pint of milk to make a cup of tea."
