Radio with Pictures - Fane Flaws opening titles

Television (Full Length) – 1987

By 1987 music show Radio with Pictures was 12 years old. RWP producer (and future boss of MTV Europe) Brent Hansen was looking for ways to inject some of the visual style now being exhibited by MTV. So he approached artist and musician Fane Flaws, and gave him carte blanche to create a new opening sequence. Animation was a new field for Flaws — but using the Eastern tinged, koto-driven composition ‘The Calamity Music’ (by his ex Crocodiles bandmate Peter Dasent) as his musical inspiration, Flaws created a unique and strikingly surreal piece that won three awards.

It was really primitive animation because I didn’t really know what I was doing. I animated by instinct which is kind of nice but it’s definitely not sophisticated.
