Blinkink’s Elliot Dear has created a second promo for Jon Hopkins with a stop frame piece for the track Feel First life.

In the promo, the audience is transported to a deserted post-apocalyptic landscape full of dust and destruction, the earth that used to be.

Dear’s handcrafted world ranges from a dilapidated space observatory to the lonely remains of a demolished fairground. Exploring the deserted world is a figure derived from an assortment of natural and manmade debris, which comes together as an anthropomorphic character roaming the landscape in search of signs of life.

The video was created using a mixture of stop motion and live action techniques.
