Kids Of The Apocalypse 'Better Life' by Ernest Desumbila
Here is a hugely ambitious but brilliantly realised spectacle of post-apocalyptic fantasy, where animation is weaved seamlessly with live action in a number of impressive set-pieces.
Stefan Storm - one half of the duo who comprise Kids Of The Apocalypse - tells Noisey that the "alternative universe" in the video, created by him and Barcelona-based director/animator Ernest Desumblia, mirrors our own. Evil corporations have ruined the world, but here, only super-powered kids can bring about a Better Life.
Storm mentions the likes of Terminator, Akira, Ralph Bakshi and 'the films of Amblin Entertainment' as inspiration. You could also add Fleur & Manu's M83 videos, and Megaforce's classic live action/animation mashup for Is Tropical's The Greeks. Pretty awesome, nonetheless.

The second video for pop supergroup LSD brings the psychedelic animation of the first into the real world, and it really takes flight in the hands of Ernest Desumbila.
