Jape

— The Heart’s Desire

Director Conor Finnegan used poster paint and a huge tank of water to create this surreal music video for Dublin band Jape’s single ‘The Heart’s Desire’.

Finnegan’s video, which combines live action and animation, begins with Jape singer Richie Egan lying on his back and covered with multicoloured paint.

As Egan sings the lyrics to the song, he swallows a strange, worm-like creature, which goes on a trippy underwater journey for the rest of the video.

Finnegan shot the underwater scenes with a GoPro camera in an 18-foot-long home-made tank in his mum’s back garden lined with rocks and plants scavenged from neighbours’ gardens.
