Rob Ulitski - 30th Nov 2021

Timothy Saccenti directs a twisted performance promo for Nineties rock behemoths Korn's comeback track, Start The Healing. 

What starts as a sleekly-shot performance in a studio space transitions into a surreal, distorted experience, largely thanks to Anthony Ciannamea's haunting 3D animation. 

Exactly what happens in the visual is open to interpretation, but the amalgamation of organic matter and artificial textures suggest a supernatural presence, and very possibly of alien origin.
