One-A-Day: DYE "Fantasy" by JEREMIE PERIN

"Tigersushi and Excuse My French are pleased to present the new video for DyE's new single, Fantasy. Directed by animation wunderkind Jérémie Périn, the video tells the story of a group of highschool kids ready for teenage mischief. They break into the local swimming pool intending a session of innocent nightswimming, in an awkward climate of romance and apprehension. What happens next is for you to discover here."

This animation might be disturbing, but it takes sensitive theme into the animation world and it gives a strong message. Talking about first experiences while being a teenager might seem as some sort of tabu, because it is not really clear if it is OK or not since these are minds of children already acting like adults. Making animation gives a way to express illusions in much stronger way visually by avoiding something that you don't really need to see anyway.
