“Love Songs For Robots is our attempt to create the sort of film Martians might make for humans, if those Martians had only observed us from afar,” say directors Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski of their new video made for Patrick Watson’s brilliant new single. “The piece is inspired by the sculpture and ballet of the avant-garde artist Oskar Schlemmer, with choreography and dance by Mistaya Hemingway (La La La Human Steps).” The directing duo are the Academy Award-nominated directors and animators behind Madame Tutli-Putli which won multiple awards at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Best Animated short Oscar. They also wrote and directed Higgelty-Piggelty Pop! which was commissioned by Spike Jonze and features the voice of Meryl Streep.
