Earlier tonight I was ranting on Twitter that there should be a movie about hipsters with super powers, and this awesome music video is what sparked the thought. The song is CHLLNGR’s Change, which I’d describe as space dub, but I have no idea if that’s a real thing or not. The video is wonderfully vague, featuring a sunglass wearing beard-o aboard an organic spaceship floating around space. Suddenly he’s attacked by a crazy lady in another spaceship, shooting at the beard-o’s ship. He goes into defense mode and handles the situation in a spectacular way.
What I love about this is how out there this is. There’s mystery, there’s power, there’s spectacle – really everything that gets me excited. The video was co-directed by Chad Turner and Ryan Todd, and I think they did a great job. The color palette and special effects are really well done and the pacing makes the video something special. I’d totally watch a full-length feature of this.
