David Knight - 12th June 2018

James Whitby's live action/animation hybrid for Gengahr mixes analogue and digital techniques to replace one of the partners in each of three genuine relationships, so they become abstracted cutouts.

Combined with a band performance - where the insturments are similarly replaced by cutouts, creates a charmingly homemade and authentic visual for I'll Be Waiting - which is Whitby's follow-up video for Gengahr the Casablanca-set promo for Before Sunrise.
