Steampunk Meets Surrealism: Behind the Scenes of the Raveonettes' "Heart of Stone"

, ,

The stunning animation of the Raveonettes' "Heart of Stone" video marks the second collaboration between the Danish band and director Chris Do of design studio/production house Blind:

If you find the video's mix of grit and surreal beauty won't leave your head, you can go deeper into its origins by visiting Blind's site, which showcases riveting storyboards, style frames and behind the scenes graphics.

In addition, Motionographer has an interview with the director, in which he talks about the creative process, working within budget limitations and advice for others interested in dabbling in music video. We found this portion to be especially inspiring:

"At the earliest stage of conceptualizing the piece, I asked everyone to look for things they felt could relate to the song and the band. One of my interns showed me a series of images produced for the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, where musicians are illustrated playing human parts like hair inside the body.

"I was inspired by these images and wrote a story about how a female character could play the role of a care taker inside the body. From there, the story evolved. It goes to show you, good ideas can come from anywhere. You just have to be willing to listen."
