DJ Shadow “Slingblade” Music Video by Ryo Kitabatake
Director, motion designer, and CG artist Ryo Kitabatake at WOW in Tokyo stirs together mystery, isolation, and atmosphere in this sweeping music video for the DJ Shadow track “Slingblade”.
Ryo Kitabatake: “We designed the story and the visuals using the degenerate and mysterious impressions we got from the track as a base.
“Unlike what is usually done, we created the video using an approach that returned the idea of ambiguity to its original expression, and in doing so, had the video use organic and distinct visuals.”
