A real life version of Happy Feet.
Last week James Blake shared the new music video for “I’ll Come Too” off of his 2019 album Assume Form. The entire video is footage courtesy of BBC Earth, edited together in a beautiful way by Matt Meech, as we follow a love story between some wildlife that includes a bit of an interspecies dance party.
The video’s editor, Matt Meech, spoke a bit about the project:
It was an honor to be invited onto the “I’ll Come Too” project. James was keen to make a music video that involved animals in some way. Once I heard the beautiful track, I knew I had to be a part of it. I started my career editing music videos, twenty years ago, and music has always been a big part of my storytelling technique.
I remembered some footage that we didn’t use on Planet Earth II that I thought might be useful. Both birds look quirky, elegant and beautiful, the Albatrosses have an unusual mating dance, which the penguins watch from afar and the mysterious backdrop of the Snares island, off the coast of Southern New Zealand, is a truly unique landscape.
