music promo | Futures | d 2006 | 3:58 min

director, producer, animator: robert seidel

music: zero 7 feat. josé gonzález

In “Futures” you will see crushed things, completely abstracted … finding together and building up to something we all have seen before … Like our true wishes and desires they shape over time and get clearer … followed by the next longing … Innuendos, artifacts and the rough synchronisation add subtle emotions to the uncertain process that build the morbid tableaux of all possible futures …

The low-budget promo for a planned DVD of Zero 7’s “The Garden” was deemed as too un-commercial and another video was commissioned for the song by Duckeye … Nevertheless it is very successfully shown at film festivals, design magazines and internet sites.

SHIFT Japan | DOTMOV Festival 2006 selected and commented by Motion Theory | Futures is hypnotic, textured, and beautiful. Robert Seidel reveals a hidden world in everyday objects. Deconstructed organic elements reverse in time, becoming what they once were. It suggests that in death there is a hidden beauty.
