Voltaire Twins - D.I.L.
2009 | 3 mins | HD

When Voltaire Twins asked me to make a video, it was difficult initially to come up with ideas and images. I liked the track but had never really delved into to this kind of music. After pitching a couple of half-baked concepts we decided to go with something minimal, using people's hands and some faux-choreography. We shot the majority of the video in a day in the studio, with a bunch of the band's fans/family/miscellaneous volunteers marching through to offer their knuckles and digits. We had a newborn come in, and an old lady who was 90-odd. Voltaire Twins have since gone on to do a bunch of snazzy looking clips with Perth filmmaker Ben Young.
