Modern Renaissance

An 18th century-style animated gif music video.

With animated gifs being all the rage lately, French director Emile Sornin is making all of our dreams come true by creating the next best thing: an animated gif music video. Set in the French Renaissance era, rap artist Dizzee Rascal performs his latest song, “I don’t need a reason,” to a series of looping segments that make us want to party, 18th-century style.

This week’s Frandoms are by Florian Pétigny, artistic director, Newad.
