Unit9 director Dawid Marcinkowski has created a sweet interactive video for new track Forget Me Not by Smolik (featuring Emmanuelle Seigner), which mixes the official video with footage from three 1950s sci-fi movies…

The video is hosted online at forgetmenot.tv. It opens by playing the official video created for the track (shown below), which came out earlier this year. This is a fairly straightforward performance film, intercut with ‘behind-the-scenes’ footage of Seigner, all shot in black and white.

On the website Marcinkowksi offers us the chance to move away from this film by clicking on the lyrics that appear over it. Stills from the site are shown below.

There are three choices offered, each one taking the viewer to a different sci-fi film: The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, Teenagers From Outer Space, or Attack From Space.

The song then seamlessly plays over the new, less predictable imagery of zombies, mutants, teenage werewolves, or bloodthirsty creatures. Viewers can switch to a different film by clicking on another lyric, or return to the official video by clicking on the yellow cross in the centre of the screen.

At the end of the track, viewers are offered the chance to watch the full-length versions of the sci-fi films online (all are now royalty free) or buy the Forget Me Not song. Try it out at forgetmenot.tv.
