David Knight - 19th Mar 2009

Dancing girls with video cameras, spectacular hats, moody lighting, Franz Ferdinand's Alex's beautiful androgenous alter-ego...

With a bagful of ideas and some sexy glamour, Nima gives Franz some of that Hot Chip vibe and turns the band's performance into a multi-faceted art installation.

To be enjoyed over several viewings - not least for another excellent edit for Nima by Dan Sherwin at Final Cut, who presumably had to wade through a ton of 'dancer-cam' footage.

But then, an interactive version for the punters to edit themselves wouldn't be such a bad idea either, would it
