Cosmic Dreamer Productions made a video for Thor and Friends “Medieval” that premiered Tuesday on Tiny Mix Tapes.
Director Andy Byers has the following to say:
“The song “Medieval” immediately conjured these archaic images of alchemy and sorcery. I was drawn to the paintings of 15th century Dutch and Flemish masters of light, imagining what might be sitting just outside of the frame of those perfectly placed fruits, goblets, and dead animals. It is always so perfectly placed, ritualistically laid out upon the table. At the same time I was deep into the life of Jim Henson, listening to his biography as I built the props. I thought about his source imagery, his perspective on light and dark, his obsession with folklore and of course, puppetry itself and his mastery of it.
To me, Thor is the embodiment of both the male and female energy, the heavy darkness and the overpowering light. Easily the strongest, most masculine man in my life and at the same time, the kindest, gentle should you will ever come across. I imagined this video to be capturing the birth of the spiritual alchemy of his ancestors, that special duality coming into existence hundreds of years ago. It is the only way I can define in my mind how an individual like Thor made his way into this world.”
