Chris Hopewell: Burn The Witch, Radiohead

Director Chris Hopewell has created a stop-motion video for Radiohead’s new song, Burn The Witch. Chris previously worked with the band on a video for There There, which won numerous awards, in 2003. This latest video is set in a seemingly cute and innocent toy village, telling the story of an inspector who comes to visit and quickly discovers its more sadistic secrets. It was published on Radiohead’s website earlier today, following a series of teaser trailers.

Chris also directed the video for Smile Like You Mean It by The Killers, Dark of the Matinee by Franz Ferdinand, Destroy Rock and Roll by Milo, and songs by Young Knives, Graham Coxon, Scissor Sisters and The Knife. He was also director Crispian Mills’ feature film A Fantastic Fear of Everything starring Simon Pegg.
