DNA & Black Label's surreal music video for David Gray's "Back in the World"
Big TV Enters a Dreamscape in David Gray Music Video

DNA directing team Big TV and production company Black Label deliver a breathtaking new music video for David Gray’s new single, “Back in the World.”

In the video, surreal, elegant animation and double-exposure techniques bring viewers into the dream world of Gray’s poetically-charged music. As moments of bold, striking color captivate, the unexpected visuals, light, and flowing movements emphasize the energetic quality of the song. Painterly worlds morph into others, and metaphoric connections between the human experience and nature are brought to life.

Debuted by USA TODAY, the music video follows a number of successful hits for Big TV, who have years of expertise lensing for artists such as Maroon 5, Matchbox Twenty, and Lauryn Hill.
