Ladies and Gentlemen and Lost Ghosts...
It gives me great pleasure to introduce the video to Haul Away! created by the wonderful Elle Brotherhood.
It's essentially mini Odyssey. A homemade epic of tiny proportions. A journey from a grey world where you don't quite fit in to a colourful island where you do. Well, a place where everyone is equally odd, so your inherant oddness is not quite so apparent.
The bulk of it was made and filmed during one weekend before Christmas last year. It was one of the nicest times I've ever had. Good friends, paint, glue, glitter and mountains of cardboard. I imagine this is how it felt for Michel Gondry when he made The Science of Sleep.
To coin a quote from Monty Python... If you enjoy watching this video half as much as we enjoyed making it. Then we've enjoyed it twice as much as you...
...But i do hope you enjoy it.
