Sort of by accident, I've become something of an expert at using archival footage.

For the song "Sleek", I immediately pictured a really mellow skateboarding vibe, and was lucky enough to find exactly the footage I needed.

"Twister"

For this video, I used footage from Lotte Reiniger's animated classic "The Adventures of Prince Achmed" (1926) to create a suggestive mood.

"Trondheim"

For "Trondheim", I found amateur footage -- mostly 8mm film -- which complemented the feeling of track quite well, I thought.
