Finn Askew 'Adidas' by Elliott Gonzo - just signed to Kode Media
Elliot Gonzo directs a trippy promo for pop up-and-comer Finn Askew - his first at his new production company home, Kode Media.
In the video for Adidas, Finn finds himself walking down a colourful neon-drenched tunnel, pushing his way through ghostly dancing characters, trying to escape from what can only be described as a surreal and conceptual MDMA trip.
Finn's journey eventually takes him out of the club setting, through a phalanx of riot police and a snowstorm, towards a big white light.
Having made his mark with riveting work for the likes of Nothing But Thieves, Au Ra and more, this is Elliott Gonzo's first video since signing to Kode Media.
“I’ve been a fan of Elliott’s work for a couple of years, and as soon as we met up we really hit it off," says Kode's head of music Nathan Killham. "Elliott’s got a brain full of crazy and cool ideas which I’m really excited to bring to life with him.”
Elliott adds “I am delighted to be accompanying such a forward-thinking and lovely group of people on the next leg of my filmmaking journey, to give me the release and encouragement I need to make my bizarre and twisted dreams a reality. They have some amazing directors who consistently push the boundaries of filmmaking and I’m over the moon to be accompanying that roster."
If this video is anything to go by, we have lots of surreal and engaging visuals to come.
