Originally the main character of the story was to be a blackbird but we provided them with an alternative treatment – the unfolding story cutting between the viewpoint of a central human figure and a black bird’s point of view.
The main theme is about being outcast, but in plain sight. About creating our own world amongst our present surrounding and it being recognised only by those who are really paying attention.
“We’re excited to work with RamJam. We’re blown away by the video and the way it brings the track to life.” – Carlos Framil, SONY
