In their latest video for New York duo Lewis Del Mar, Smuggler directors Rubberband (also known as Jason Sondock and Simon Davis) work with animator James Siewert on a tactile and desperate stop-motion media explosion.
Jason Sondock and Simon Davis: “TV” was the second music video we shot for Lewis Del Mar during the lockdown. We worked closely with our insanely talented and hardworking co-director and lead animator James Siewert, who really deserves the lion's share of the loan for the time he's put into this project. "
“We thought a lot about being inundated with information. How the way we understand and relate to information in media is shaped by far more than its content – how the amount and methods of consumption create their own infinitely complex rhythms and meanings. About what arises from traditional storage of information.
"We wanted to explore what is created in this room and visualize this new, often overwhelming experience of daily dealing with the world through media."
