SOVIET MIRACLES

Artist Sam Mason consciously/subconsciously references classic Russian communist cartoons in his new video for Badly Drawn Boy’s Too Many Miracles. Easy-to-spot soviet style of animation, the fable-like color scheme and story line are reminiscent to my communist childhood, in which i so patiently awaited the 6pm educational communist Russian folk-tales. This video’s also got an incredible nostalgic filmic glow that i’d like to look into for future reference in projects.
