Mogwai - “Helicon 1″ (Official Video)

This is not a new song from Mogwai; in fact, it’s a very old one. But it is the start of a new era for the Scottish post-rock group, who will ring in their 20th year together this summer. Like many legacy acts, they’re releasing a career-spanning album to commemorate the anniversary. It’s called Central Belters and will be a 3xCD and 6xLP set. Along with this, they’ve released a new video for 1997 single “New Paths To Helicon, Pt. 1,” more commonly known as “Helicon 1.” The visual was shot by Craig Murray, who also worked with the band on the video for “Teenage Exorcists.” Murray pieced this clip together from 35mm stills taken in Okinawa, Kyoto, and Osaka, and talks a little bit about that process:
The film you see is made from 100% 35mm stills which I shot off the screen: I used about 100+ rolls which were all individually scanned. All effects you see in the film are physical workings of the negatives (scanner compositing, scratching, liquids etc.). Given the logistics of shooting everything discreetly and also in the sea, the original footage was all shot on an iPhone and a go-pro, with some addition animation using 35mm.
