Carl Burgess: Beauty Through Order

Work / Film

Film: 1000 litres of black treacle and nudity means a new website from Carl Burgess

In honour of the relaunch of Carl Burgess’ More Soon site (the home of his team’s phenomenal work) I’ve gone through and watched every single piece of film and 3D animation to choose the “best bit” to post today. I’ve seen in-store visuals for Prada, a stunning collaboration with Jonathan Zawada, Thomas Traum, Tom Darracott and Pharell Williams, re-watched his video for Ratatat’s Drugs and enjoyed some lovely fashion films for Kenzo.

But then I realised we’ve never posted his video for Slayer’s Beauty Through Order which, despite being a good few years old, still blows my mind. 1000 litres of black treacle, bright orange flames and a spot of mildly gratuitous nudity – plus Carl destroyed an extremely expensive motorbike with syrup in the testing process for this film. What’s not to love? In all honesty though, every piece of work on Carl’s site is worth checking out – this is one incredibly talented guy.
