Anonymous Israeli art collective Broken Fingaz direct music video for U2 and Beck.
The frequent U2 collaborators directed a politically-charged, animated music video for the band’s single Get Out of Your Own Way earlier this year.
Today they reveal the video for Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way, featuring stop-motion animation using plasticine and paintings that capture beautiful details like tiny Euthymol toothpaste tubes, Nag Champa incense stick boxes and miniature bars of soap.
The three and a half minute video features their characteristic, surreal perspective, whilst summoning ideas of the transcendental power of love as figures dance intimately.
Discussing the project, they say “It is the 3rd video we did for U2 this year. Unlike the first two videos, this time we were all working together from the same place and approached it more like a short film”.
“We used two animation techniques we’ve never tried before; the classic animation is made up of 1,200 acrylic paintings and for the stop-motion we teamed up with the amazing _ZAZ animation_ studio to create a world from plasticine”.
