String Theory and Buck’s ‘Metamorphosis’ for Oxfam’s Good Books charity was a deserving winner of the craft grand prix at the Axis Awards last week. The visual craft involved in such a production is fairly obvious. But the sonic craft is less so. Thankfully, creative music studio Antfood has put together a behind-the-scenes case study to show how it concocted its crazy audio brew.
To raise awareness of Good Books’ benevolent raison d’être, which is purely to raise money for Oxfam, String Theory teamed up with Buck to create the first of three videos in a digital campaign called Good Books Great Writers. It’s a stunning homage to the High Priest of Gonzo – Hunter S. Thompson, and deserves plaudits for its incredible script and spectacular imagery.
