Peter Gabriel’s The Drop

Recent videos by Glenn Marshall for electronica groups have turned us into fans – but this older video, for Peter Gabriel’s The Drop – is just as interesting:

This was my first music video, for Peter Gabriel, made in 2003. 

About 2 months to make, I paid special attention to the lyrics, and how imagery and motion would cue up on certain words and phrases.

I also developed further my fascination with choreographed, complex moving patterns, using the same techniques in Butterfly, which involved attaching sprites/images to particle systems. 

Marshall also tells a great story about how this video came to be at his site.
