Rob Ulitski - 7th May 2021

George Moore and Jack Pell bring the retro vibes in his animated promo for David Guez. 

The video for The Corners Of Your Mind is a creative collaboration between Moore and animator Jack Pell, and follows a chase within someone's brain - as the chase ramps up, memory and reality begin to fracture. 

Achieved through the use of a greenscreen treadmill and some After Effects trickery, the video takes inspiration from a host of references, from the title sequence of Catch Me If You Can and the shifting Escher staircases in Labyrinth, to the aesthetic of early Vectrex games consoles and the digital landscapes of Tron.

The retrofuturistic aesthetic feels very much in tune with our contemporary obsession with 80s and 90s nostalgia, and the glitchy graphics touch upon an uncharted world that exists only in science fiction and old video games.
