Hoi Polloi's Jamie Gyngell directs 'Human Remains' entirely on Super 8 for the indie band
Hoi Polloi director Jamie Gyngell has helmed the video for Beach Baby's latest release.
'Human Remains' was shot entirely on Super 8 and is a light-hearted homage to the schlocky body horror of the 70s / 80s that he loves so much. In the film, a man starts to fall apart - literally. He can’t even order breakfast without disgracing himself by vomiting some very nasty looking black goop down his front. He tries to find a way back to normal life but is haunted by a band of silk-shirted ghouls. After losing his teeth in the sink and finding one in the bathtub, it's pretty clear he can't escape.
Cornered, our hero gouges his own eyes out, and comes to in the purgatorial "limbo lounge" where he lets go of his anxieties and cuts loose - now a fully fledged silk shirt wearing ghoul himself. The band's new album is titled "Songs From The Limbo Lounge", so it all makes some sort of sense.
