PLOT’s first USA produced music video with director Ewan MacLeod for San Francisco band Deerhoof. Shot over 2 days in the Mojave desert, this music video is a glimpse at the coming short film “Mutants of California City” currently in post production. This playful but stark clip was featured in September 2011 by Rolling Stone Magazine.
PLOT’s short film follows a day in the life of a seemingly boring woman. On the outside she looks entirely ordinary. The scope of her imagination, however, is a completely different matter. It’s a joyous look into the possibilities of the imagination and it’s written, directed and produced by PLOT.
Music video clip for Melbourne band The Vasco Era’s single ‘Rock and Roll Is The Only Thing That Makes Me Feel Good’. The story follows a very bad day in the life of lead singer Sid. With a Canon 5D strapped to his body, Sid makes his way through streets, cars and parties while stuff is flung at is face. Poor Sid.
