 you can catch reality through the glimpse of unreal figurines
“Drag what’s left of my body in the mud” is the story of a “deadly” girl and her “slightly” violent and disturbed respond to the paranoia and the emotional alienation generated by the decadent urban life, in the contemporary “concrete jungles”. The set are the sleazy backstreets of Athens. The outcome “Drag Me”: an urban music tale.

I’ve been for quite some time now, playing with the idea of creating a piece along the lines of cut-out animation tradition. When I run, a few months ago, into some wonderful tutorials by Daniel Gies, I felt that the time had come and started looking for the right project. That is when I was approached by GAB productions and “The You and What Army Faction” for the creation of a music video. When i begun to listen to the music, the dark, dirty and rough sounds of the “Faction” started triggering in my mind, images of roughly drown urban sites and lumpen characters, sleazy bars and dirty backstreets. So we chose the song and I was on my way.
