The works of Stockholm based video director, graphic designer and music producer David Giese lend a lot from boy room sci-fi fantasies. Given his track record, any project involving David is bound to set our curiosity spinning.
David is one of the instigators of the Scandinavian electronic funk scene called Skweee, and besides a terrific musical output he’s been a key player when it comes to documenting what’s about to blow up in the said music scene. Almost all of his production’s deal with the future, for instance; in 2009, he worked with background images and sets on the most ambitious animated European movie, Metropia. He’s also done miraculous animations for children’s theatre, plus directed a slew of music videos.
Stocktown is happy to present the trailer for David Giese and Iacopo Patiernos music documentary:
