Savages - Marshal Dear

Produced by Beakus and directed/animated by Hungarian born RCA graduate Gergely Wootsch, this incredible music video was created to accompany the Savages' track 'Marshal Dear.'

Wootsch worked with Savages guitarist Gemma Thompson’s original storyboards inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s 1969 novel 'Slaughterhouse Five,' specifically a scene centred around a WWII bomb factory worker, in the development of the videos narrative. Thompson said of the project, ‘This scene would replay in my head and I could imagine it as an animation of the lines flowing into each other, much like early hand-drawn animation created to accentuate a musical score.‘

Handled in a similarly stylised bleak, yet tender, aesthetic to 'The Hungry Corpse' (Gergely's last animated short), Wootsch was the perfect pairing for this refreshingly thought-provoking and visually captivating music video.
