For the video for his new single What'll It Take, Graham Coxon invited his fans to be the stars...

Coxon requested help via the film below, which he placed on YouTube at the beginning of February. This explained the moves that fans should record themselves making, before uploading their films to Coxon's website.

The resulting video, shown below, sees the uploaded clips animated into the promo by director Ninian Doff. The project has similiarities with Japanese band Sour's video for track Hibi no neiro and the crowdsourced video One Frame of Fame for C'mon & Kypski, though the Coxon promo uses the footage in a more unusual manner by the end. Check it out below:

Director: Ninian Doff
Producer: Stacy Vaughan
Production Company: Pulse Films
Label: Parlophone
Commissioner: Oliver Hammerton


CR in Print

Thanks for visiting the CR website, but if you are not also reading CR in print you're missing out. Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing "from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness".

The best way to make sure you receive CR in print every month is to subscribe – you will also save money and receive our award-winning Monograph booklet every month. You can do so here.
