Island Mint 'Burnout' by Marek Partyš

Rob Ulitski - 21st June 2024

Marek Partyš directs a marvellous surrealist love story for Prague-based band Island Mint, channelling the spirit of mid-20th century experimental Czech animation. 

Framed by a mysterious apocalyptic event, the video for Burnout employs vintage cutout animation techniques, with a captivating contemporary twist, exploring the big issues - love, sex, death, etc - with irreverent wit.

Czech director Partyš - whose previous work includes the Son Lux (live action) video for Yesterday's Wake - pays homage to the imagination and dark humour of great Czech animators such as Jan Švankmajer, and Terry Gilliam's work on Monty Python, with this brilliant, singular visual that complements the psychedelic pop rock of the Prague-based band.
