The Ceiling

by Andrew MacGregor

Lewis del Mar: “The Ceiling” - 2 mins 57s

At times, lockdown has felt like an extended episode of MTV Cribs. Artists and directors alike have turned their homes into makeshift film sets, offering unexpected insights into A-list feng shui and interior design choices. Jason Sondock - one half of directing duo Rubberband - is the latest to show viewers around in the name of entertainment.

This handsome, slow-burning promo for Lewis Del Mar glides through Sondock’s flat, with animated squiggles and 16mm film grain adding visual texture. There’s also a sense of warmth to Sondock and Simon Davis’s effort, as ‘The Ceiling' combines an urgent rhythm with observational lyrics (“Playing Conan at four.../A sweat in the pores”).
