So much to love about director Sean Pecknold’s 8th and latest collaboration with Fleet Foxes! Offering something of a cinematic sequel/prequel to last year’s “Fool’s Errand,” the 35mm short follows a man trying his best to escape the infinite loop he’s got himself locked in. It also sees Pecknold re-teaming with a lot of creative talent from his previous projects, and bringing everything together in the California desert (during the hottest month of July!). As he further shared with us:

“I’m really excited about this one because I feel like I was able to get obsessive with the world we made for the video in a similar way to how I have with my animation work. My partner Adi Goodrich and a small team of artists dedicated their time and heart to creating a surreal and graphic world for this character’s journey. I also teamed up with Steve Reker, my choreographer from Fool’s Errand on this, and he brought a similar movement vocabulary to the new role.”
