Birds

Directed By Pleix
Made In France

Man’s best friend flutters weightlessly through this hypnotic music video. Vitalic’s White Labels provides the soundtrack as dogs are hurled into the air in slow motion. The dogs courageously cross into unknown territory, surrendering control of their surroundings to the laws of nature. Airborne, they float awkwardly, unconscious of their own self-image. Though in a state of unease, they simply hold steady until reunited with the earth—grateful to have left it, but pleased upon its return.

Visually, Birds is a masterful work of slow-motion photography. Ears flap and fur flies as every imaginable composition is explored. Aurally, Vitalic’s driving bass beat keeps the pace building.
