Cat Velez - 14th Dec 2015

Markus Schroder has created a charming video for London-based indie rock band Eliza and The Bear's It Gets Cold, in the style of very early cinema, as pioneered by illusionist and filmmaker Georges Méliès.

It stages a highly choreographed, theatrical performance set in elaborate and handmade sets, telling the story of a young man at an archery range who commits an accidental killing while distracted by a tricksy devil.

This sets off a chain of events where he sets out and ends up making a pact with the devil while his wife is chased by angry mourners while searching for him. The bittersweet conclusion has the unfortunate couple finding each other again... in hell.
