Taken from last year’s critically-acclaimed top 5 album, ‘10 Songs’, Travis have released the video for their romantically reminiscent single, ‘Waving At The Window’.
The video is another directed by Fran Healy, who has developed all the creative content for this album campaign, including directing five official videos and creating the memorable artwork. ‘Waving at the Window’ was filmed in LA and using the same deepfake creative team as the video for ‘Nina’s Song’.
Fran said of the video: “I shot the performance in downtown LA at sunrise with a small crew. Then Hao Li and his team at Pinscreen helped bring the band from the UK to downtown LA with their deepfake technology.It took around 6 days for their supercomputers to learn everyone’s faces and smoosh it all together. The results are amazing if a little disturbing.
“The song is subtle from a distance, but very intense upon closer inspection so the video fits perfectly.’ He continues ‘At first it’s just a straightforward performance video, but if you look closer, it’s anything but. I think it’s the closest I have gotten to reflecting a song in a simple way. It’s been a good year learning more about film making and learning to simplify my strokes. It’s hard to be deliberately simple.“
