Today, at what is the pinnacle of Instagram- and YouTube-mania, where technology allows a certain ease in filmmaking, Langhorne Slim & The Law took a different route, using Super 8-cameras and 8mm analogue film to make the music video for their new single, “Animal.” The video can be seen here, and the song is now available on iTunes.
For the video, Langhorne Slim partnered up with the creative agency Anomaly Amsterdam, whose blue chip client roster includes Budweiser, Converse, the Marriott Hotel Group, and Nike. Directed by Anomaly’s Daniel Eskils and Zack McDonald, the crew followed the band on a road trip across America, from New York to Las Vegas, with many stops along the way — like Saxapahaw, NC and Langhorne’s hometown of Nashville. Shooting on 8mm film stock meant that the filmmakers had no instant playback, standard with today’s digital gear, which gave the entire production a sense of adventure and urgency.
