The feverish complexity of Flicker is captured in this video collaboration between Fetus Productions' Jed Town and director Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City, promos for INXS, Crowded House, Mike Oldfield). The pair deliver a terrifically haunting clip, skillfully creating an intensely serpentine work full of dark frames and layered, unnerving images. Yikes.
We shot it in my old Sydney squat near the Pyrmont wharves. There's a police station there now I think. My actor mate Void from (Wellington band) Riot 111 came round and 'set the place alight'. I had to dampen things down a bit.– Jed Town, May 2009
