A couple of good friends who make the music videos they want to see.

This Swedish duo of director-animators, comprised of Hannes Elltorp and Johannes Helgelin, grew up a little bored of reality. After finishing high school they tried to escape by experimenting with art, film and photography.

They made their decision to start directing music videos while watching The Knife play live in a 2006 concert and soon educated themselves in animation software and the techniques they’d need to achieve this. They eventually worked on their first promo for American electronic indie outfit Passion Pit in 2010 - a pretty big name for a debut.

Having flown the nest, the pair lived in Tokyo for seven months and have now lived in London for a year.

This summer they spent one month in the middle of the Swedish forest, in total solitude, planning upcoming projects. They’ve got an art show coming up, a bunch of new music videos and also a fan-made live action music video for Ty Segall, so watch out for them.

Watch some of their work here:
