A LEGO train long-take music video: Anna Meredith’s Paramour

A camera mounted on the front of a toy train captures the scenes surrounding its LEGO tracks: potted plants, cardboard buildings, molecular model toys, multi-sided dice, LEGO letters, bridges, and tunnels, as well as musicians playing a variety of instruments. Filmed in one long-take, Ewan Jones Morris directed this fast-moving, prop-filled video for Anna Meredith‘s Paramour, a track off of her new album FIBS.
