Glass Animals Clone Dancing Dave for Quirky ‘Space Ghost Coast To Coast’ Video

Riff Raff's Max Siedentopf directed the video shot from one perspective

Glass Animals Clone Dancing Dave for Quirky ‘Space Ghost Coast To Coast’ Video

Although the promo for the Glass Animals single 'Space Ghost Coast to Coast' was released in May 2021, it was shot a year earlier during the first UK lockdown, when shooting with a crew was impossible and all we could really do is stay at home. 

Max Siedentopf, director said: ‘We decided to use this to our advantage and actually shoot the entire video from the balcony of my home together with a DOP who coincidentally lived in the same building. 

To make sure we stuck to social distancing rules the entire video was shot at 4am with no one around and Glass Animals’ frontman Dave was placed 200m away from our balcony. 

As shooting with multiple people was not allowed we decided to instead clone Dave. Here the real and digital world was merged together with dozens if not hundreds of Dave clones running around our scene. The entire video was shot from one perspective, using a super long zoom lens so that even 200m away we could still get close to Dave - and no matter where we zoom to we always see dancing Daves everywhere.’
