The music video for Thom Yorke’s ‘Last I Heard (…He Was Circling The Drain)’, from his solo album ANIMA, is almost hard to describe. You’re best off watching the whole thing and absorbing the surreal imagery. The video, directed by Art Camp and Saad Moosajee, runs in black and white and combines 3D animation and cell animation, including a variety of CG imagery completed in Houdini.
