Warp Films

Warp Films has been cleaning up on the festival circuit this year. This is England took Best Film at the British Independent Films Awards, and Dog Altogether and Exhibit A have scooped up awards recently.

Warp Films is the moving picture cousin of Warp Records, producing shorts, feature-length films, DVDs and of course music videos. Warp Films' development slate currently includes projects with directors Jarvis Cocker, David Slade (Hard Candy) and Frank Cottrell Boyce (24hour Party People).

The most recent Battles video Tonto was produced in collaboration with technology-focused media and installation artists UnitedVisualArtists.

We created a unique LED installation in a disused Welsh slate mine - an audio synchronised field of light contrasting with the rugged terrain. The video consists of our documentation of the band's marathon 11 hour performance, as well as a series of time lapse pieces from the surrounding geography. The cover artwork for the single is also taken from the shoot, and was art directed by UVA.

Better video quality and high res stills at the UVA website.
