The Kid Should See This
Created for the song by Aedan and directed by French video artist Thomas Blanchard, this vibrantly lit music video for Evolution features mantises, millipedes, a Rhinoceros beetle, some unlucky feeder insects, and time-lapse clips of blooming orchids. From the director’s site:
Weeks of filming in a vacuum with a plethora of insects and plants to better understand their mechanism and interactions. The result is a striking spectacle where one can observe life with a new eye.
The short was shot in 8K with macro lenses, then edited in 4K. Find more of Blanchard on Vimeo and Instagram.
