Blossoms 'Charlemagne' by Jake Jelicich
A card game with cosmic consequences is at the heart of Jake Jelicich's stylish video for Blossoms' catchy Charlemagne.
"I wrote this concept over a bottle of wine in the park, pulling on the great lyrics of the song. I wanted to tell a stylish abstract narrative, with elements of mythology that always intrigue me. I loved the idea of the band waking up in purgatory and gambling with ferrymen to get out, from there it developed pretty organically.
"I wanted the viewer to feel like they were having an out of body experience with the band, so we employed some pretty fun AR rig movement. Stylistically I was after a sense of nostalgia, so we lensed it with vintage glass and a healthy serving of haze."
