Martin de Thurah

Martin De Thurah is a Danish film director who did music videos for bands like Royksopp, Mew, Carpark North, and Fever Ray. I first noticed his video through Royksopp's 'What Else Is There'. His videos are very eerie, dark but also humorous which I find very appealing. It’s like watching a modern version of Grimm’s fairytales. His delicate color palettes and use of beautiful but odd youth reminds me of ‘Paranoid Park’, a recent films by Gus Van Saint and ‘Let the Right One In’, a Swedish film about a vampire girl.
