UK born/Belfast-based musician DREW MAKES NOISE shares the DIY Supermarionation music video for ‘Satellite’.
Blending humour with cynicism, the video depicts an overworked office employee, stuck in a monotonous life and daydreaming about space adventures. Pairing imagination with escapism, alien overlords and references to interdimensional space spiders are sprinkled throughout the video. The scatterbrained fun melodies of pop and dance music manage to balance out the erratic aspects of the footage, providing a smooth and well-conceptualised production.
Revealing the intensity that went into creating the music video, Drew Makes Noise says: “This was full-on DIY. I disappeared for 4 full months to build a model world for characters and space ships to live in. The bearded character was loosely meant to be me but as time went on I felt like he actually “was” me and I, him and that I was living in a movie within a movie. I was going through my own hero’s journey to do something I have never done before. The scene with the live-action sawing and working in the shed was like method acting, as that’s what my life was like making the video. Life was imitating art and I lost my mind a little. After each scene was filmed I actually did some minor grieving as each time I thought a little person or thing I had created had died and left me. Now I know why actors and directors go crazy!”
