Phoebe Green 'Just A Game' by Niall Trask

Rob Ulitski - 25th July 2022

Phoebe Green creates a Monster she can spend time with, in Niall Trask's Frankenstein-inspired promo for Just A Game. 

The chromatic video blends live-action and animation to create a playfully nostalgic aesthetic, which follows Green as the creator - and then partner - of the cute Monster (Astile Doherty) she brings to life.

Lo-fi and campy, the video doesn't take itself too seriously, instead focusing on the surrealism in the performances and the idea. A colour palette of neon greens and oranges, as well as a prism-style effect overlaid on the footage, elevates the video, standing out amongst other similar ideas. 

It's also a real departure into indie-pop, and a chance to explore a more light-hearted style than previously for Niall Trask - although it also shares a certain ghoulish sensibility with his recent video for Jamie T.
