videoThe Magician 'You & Me' by Andrea Mae Perez
Andrea Mae Perez directs a visually stunning animated video for The Magician's You & Me. Following a Tokyo-set love story between a blind boy and a pretty girl, the visual starts in dreary monochrome before launching into a psychedelic world full of colour, mythical creatures and pink sunsets.Richly textured and vibrant, the anachronistic animation style falls somewhere between Yellow Submarine and the artwork on the Wikihow website. Andrea Mae Perez confidently weaves together the various narrative and conceptual elements, to create a world and aesthetic that feels elevated yet strangely familiar.
