In Thomas Ralph's video for Prospa, the young protagonist embarks on a remarkable journey - after his death.For the UK dance-electronic act's increasingly euphoric Want Need Love, Ralph confronts some well-worn nostrums about the Afterlife, and then gives them a proper rave-style makeover. This out-of-body experience bears all the hallmarks of a seriously psychedelic experience. This is partly due to Ralph collaborating with macro photographers Chris Parks and Roman Hill on sequences that echo sequences from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Altered States, and beyond. As a result this road traffic accident victim passes experiences extraordinary beauty as he transitions to his new post-Life reality.
