Landrien, who relished the opportunity create the video for the new release. “It was really great to work on this project as I was excited to explore the visual aspect of jealousy set in a fantasized vision of Tokyo,” Landrein said of the partnership with Croll. “It was fun to translate the imagination and dreams we can have around the imagery that this city can create in our mind.”
“I’ve always wanted to do an animated video and I’m so glad to not only get to finally do it but also to work with the amazing Simon Landrein” added Croll, “I’ve admired his work for a long time now, he’s someone who has mastered the simplicity and humor of animation so well and I’m so happy with the Tokyo results!”
