Dust Video

Dust from Telafonica on Vimeo.

Initially begun back in 2005, the original footage of Marcella was shot and edited with the intention that each frame would then be hand drawn in lead pencil, rephotographed, and put together as the final film clip, when the track was originally released as a single from the album, 'Morpheme'. About 10 seconds worth of frames were hand drawn before it became apparent that the task was way beyond the time and energy we had to put into it! So the film was put into the back of everyone's minds.

A few months ago, I got a new laptop and began transferring files across from my old one. I rediscovered the black and white film of Marcella singing and thought she looked great and that it was about time to use the footage so it wasn't wasted forever. So it was combined with some old hand drawn and scratched 8mm film that has been used in various guises in Telafonica's live projections for many many years to make a simple video clip. The song is now about 5 years old, so it's really just going to function as a nice curio, rather than for any real promotional value but, anyway, here it is.
