A wonderfully retro video for The Strokes by writer-director Mike Burakoff. Co-produced with Benjy Brooke (previously featured here), “At The Door” pays homage to mature animated films of the 70s/80s, specifically Watership Down, Heavy Metal and Time Masters. As Brooke explains further:

“Like Heavy Metal, we approached production as a pseudo-anthology, but with a core team dictating the storyboards and overall look. Additional sequences were produced by 2veinte in Buenos Aires, and Remembers Productions in Paris. The film debuted at Bernie Sanders’ New Hampshire Rally on February 10, with a performance by The Strokes. The look is intentionally retro, but the goal was to capture our contemporary feelings of anxiety and doom, with a call to action to fight for a more hopeful collective future.”
