Sam Hill - 7th Nov 2012

We've seen Émile Sornin's admirable visual effects vision in action before - not least in the very entertaining Cut Copy 'Blink and You'll Miss a Revolution' (as well as his more sleight-of-hand work for Naive New Beaters' La Onda). Now Émile has delved into the world of recent Mercury Award winners Alt-J's Fitzpleasure.

However, Émile's twist has utilised some mind-bending VFX (some subtle - some not so subtle) to warp and morph his characters, creating an altogether more fascinating character examination that sits excellently with Alt-J's frenetic and changeable song.
