Hi everyone,

I am delighted to announce the premier of our first animated film tonight. It only runs for about 2 1/2 minutes but huge amounts of care and work have gone into this. I think it looks so atmospheric and has a beautifully crafted and unique look. It has been created by Finn and Patrick at Brandt Animation. It has been really exciting working on this. I hope you like it.

I want to say a very special thanks to Mike Solinger, the producer on this project. Without him this could never have happened. I would also like to thank the Yeti who was the inspiration for the song and this short film. I hope it remains an enigma.

With very best wishes,
Kate

You can watch the animation on Kate’s official site at 19:30 GMT here.

  5. Lee says:

    Kept trying to log into site for over 20mins to see this, kept getting a site error, when I finally got in the animation was not there :-(

  6. Kate – seen briefly and indistinctly in a video about the briefly and indistinctly seen Yeti?

    She is playing with her own self-created media image again.

    In the 80s she parodied her own eccentric Englishness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvWUSjs9zeQ

    In the 90s she parodied her own ‘kooky’ media image: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haOrkNyRPNs

    In the 00s she parodied her own accent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbAedF-ujLI

    Kate Bush is meta-narrative of … herself! (this is so post-modern, I think I might to lie down now)

    I think it’s a lovely piece of work. Plus there is a little glimpse of KB; and that’s always good.

    Kate is on to something new, here …
    she is just giving us a taste of the song , not the whole thing
    the silouettes, shadows and light and use of suggestion are brilliant
    well done !

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I don’t like videos that have the artist in it, lip-syncing…it’s so overdone and lame at this point. I prefer mini-movies/cinematic videos and this is just that. Sure, we get a ghostly image of Kate – and for me, that’s PLENTY.
