Print in Motion Winner: Explosions in the Sky's Last Known Surroundings

Entry Title: Explosions in the Sky’s Last Known Surroundings Design Firm / Agency: Ptarmak, Inc. Client Company Name: Explosions in the Sky Production Company: Ptarmak, Inc.

Project Description Born from a dinner table discussion on organic pattern formation and the reception of a new sound from a distant and emerging planet, the band Explosions in the Sky and the artists at Ptarmak set out to create the first ever music video for the leading track Last Known Surroundings for Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. Spearheaded by the visions of illustrator Sissy Emmons Hobizal, animator David Hobizal, and the band’s invaluable input, this video hopes to serve as a synchronized visual accompaniment to Explosions in the Sky’s “cathartic mini-symphonies.”
