Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 130: Portishead “The Rip”

While going through my list of potential twisted music videos, I saw that I’d saved Portishead‘s “The Rip”. I didn’t exactly remember why I saved it so I popped it on and everything came rushing back. It’s a haunting video, one that tackles a great many themes of destruction, disdain, and abandonment. It’s also done in a very old school and organic fashion. Animator Nick Uff drew each frame completely by hand on 16mm film.

He states, “Each frame has to be different, animated films cannot stand still. That means they can be quite difficult on the eye, especially in the style I use, it’s very busy, a bit scratchy.” [Source]

So head below to enjoy this somber song from the groups third studio album, appropriately named Third.
