M83: Claudia Lewis video
A new video has emerged for the M83 track Claudia Lewis, another song that featured on their 2011 Hurry Up we're Dreaming collection.
The video, directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, is the latest to come out as part of MTV's Supervideos series.
The idea of the Supervideos was to bring directors and actors together to make music videos. While not the 'official' videos by the acts involved, they provide an interesting alternative visual take on the song.
Previous videos have included LCD Soundsystem's Pow Wow directed by Training Day writer David Ayer and starring Anna Kendrick, best known for her part in the George Clooney movie Up in the Air that saw her get an Oscar nomination.
The director of the new M83 clip is Bryce Dallas Howard, the daughter of Oscar winning director Ron Howard. She's established herself as an actor and director in her own right
The actress that features in the video is Lily Collins, daughter of former Genesis drummer and 80s solo star Phil Collins.
M83 have of course released the soundtrack to the Tom Cruise movie Oblivion since their last full album, but the new video certainly serves as a reminder that we could certainly be doing with some new material from M83 before too long.
