New Annuals Video premieres on MTV2

Posted by on Thu, Sep 25, 2008 at 1:55 PM

Click here for the "Confessor" video, the opening track and lead single from the band's second album, Such Fun, due Oct. 7 on Sony imprint, Canvasback.

Drop below the break for some thoughts from director Daniel Auber:

"Annuals' 'Confessor' is my first directorial experience after more than 20 years of work in the film industry.  [My career] began with building creatures in Rome, then into conceptual design with Terry Gilliam (Monty Python, Brazil, Twelve Monkeys, Time Bandits, etc.) in London and moving to Los Angeles after winning an Emmy award with the Jim Henson's Creature Shop. I directed this video as part of the artist collective, The Masses. The treatment that the band wrote for 'Confessor' brought me back to the fanciful atmospheres that captured my teenage years.  I felt it would be the perfect opportunity to practice some magic with the use of drawings.

The video (echoing a journey through the illustrations of a Fantasy book) takes advantage of a simple brain mechanism to evoke the presence of a supernatural element: a mysterious owl with cat eyes. Under this incantation, the protagonists of the video (members of the band) follow the course of their destiny. And following this exciting experience, I perhaps found a new one myself."
