Heartbreaker

It took just 6 weeks to produce, illustrate and animate a music video from scratch…one of the many talents of Mason London! He reimagined the three members of music group “Dream Wife” as robots, inspired by 1988 Japanese science fiction film, Akira. A blend of action and details which takes place in a dystopian future mirroring our civilisation, where the robotic band are forced to play repeatedly in a bar for finally breaking free. “I liked the idea of making a video where someone was trying to contain this energy at the beginning of the song but then it inevitably breaks free.” Watch the full video here!

Mason London

We are delighted to welcome some fresh blood here at CIA. Known under the mysterious pseudonym of Mason London, Joe Prytherch can turn any project into something cool and energetic, referencing popular culture with a mix of sensitive observational work and punchy, humorous surrealism.

Hugely influenced by hip-hop and underground music, it’s as the art director for the online music platform Boiler Room that Joe started his career before becoming a full-time illustrator and animator. His style has already been adopted by brands like Nike or Adidas and record labels such as Stones Throw among others. He’s even proven himself as a one-man powerhouse of animation, producing an entire music video from scratch in 6 weeks.
