These Systems Are Failing by Moby /Are You Lost In The World Like Me by Steve Cutts
A fantastically laboured and bleakly beautiful homage to early Black & White cartoon animation sets the style for this pop promo by Steve Cutts. Inhabiting a sometimes apocalyptic world of phone addicted sleepwalkers, our protagonist.. who looks a bit like Moby wanders the streets in desperation at the inability to connect with humans. Plenty of topical, clever and relevant remarks on contemporary society, which resonate. One stand out shot is the scene referencing Pokemon Go.. Lovely commentary !
