Today the awesome animation video for “Dead Fox” was released into the world, the songs is about Corporate greed and big business and the impact these corporations have on our lives in particular the way they influence what we eat and how we get our groceries into our fridges. The clip was directed and animated By Rory Kerr and Paul Ruttledge who were inspired by the messages in the song, they tell us “We liked how politically loaded and conversational the lyrics are. We wanted the animation to have a stylistic and organic look, hence most of the drawings were done on paper rather than digitally. To further compliment the lyrics, we thought it would be funny to have the animals in the video look as cynical as possible, as if they’d had enough with how humans are treating them.”
