WATCH: Péter Vácz & Joseph Wallace team up for JAMES music video “Dear John”

// Featured, News


Award-winning director Péter Vácz (Streamschool/Rabbit & Deer) has created another stop-motion music video for British band James, following his 2014 animated realisation of the song All I’m Saying. For his latest video Dear John, director Vácz has teamed up with film/theatre director and stop motion/puppetry specialist Joseph Wallace for the film’s story and animation, with additional artistic input from Milán Kopasz (set design) and Attila Bertóti (2D animation/FX).

Produced by Sam Hope of Picasso Pictures, the video depicts a couple whose mountain hike veers off course when a mysterious black cat leads them into a strange forest. The song was specifically picked by Péter from James’ latest critically acclaimed studio album, Girl at the End of the World. Following the band’s launch of the video earlier in the month it has this week been released via Péter Vácz’s Vimeo channel along with an extensive behind-the-scenes making-of video that can be viewed below:

The video is the latest in a series of animated music videos for the band; as well as Vácz’s preceding video All I’m Saying, James have also worked with acclaimed director Ainslie Henderson for their Moving On video in 2014.
