SPIKE JONZE’S SKATEBOARD APOCALYPSE
Director Spike Jonze has returned to music videos with a clip for UNKLE entitled “Heaven.” It’s a gorgeously shot slo-mo return to Jonze’s skateboarding days that crescendos with… well, I won’t spoil it any more than the below statement from UNKLE’s MySpace page (and the screen grab) already does.
“Heaven” was used in the acclaimed skate film Fully Flared directed by Spike Jonze and Ty Evans. The collaboration inspired the directors to take footage and re-edit a sequence of shots that shows the Lakai skateboarding team demonstrating their considerable skills as they navigate through and around various exploding obstacles. With “Heaven” as the musical backdrop, the resulting marriage of sound to picture is quite extraordinary.
