Paul Jacks embarks on a perilous journey to make his way back home in Eric Power’s (last seen on DN here) animated papercraft music video for Lightning Lobotomy – the first video from Jacks’ debut solo album Defractor. About his inspiration for the video Eric says:

“The song spoke to my own wanderlust, so I chose to explore a character who is seemingly on an endless journey. I wondered what the repercussions would be of a life spent in the air. Would everything begin to bleed together? I opted to dive into abstraction to explore these ideas. Unlike many videos I’ve directed, I decided not to focus heavily on a narrative structure. This ended up being a very challenging project to wrap my head around, but I am quite pleased with the results of my experimentation.”
