Let's Watch Head Over Heart's New Music Video by Alex Italics

Posted By on Wed, Jan 21, 2015 at 10:00 AM

2014 was a good year for Tucson filmmaker Alex Italics: His short film, Sheltered Love, won enough awards at festivals to fill the average bomb shelter; John Hodgman declared him the winner of a contest to make a music video for They Might Be Giants (watch it here); and on New Year's Eve, he got married to his sweetheart.

He's starting out 2015 strong, too: His new video for Tucson band Head Over Heart landed an Entertainment Weekly exclusive last week, although the filmstrip-based video has since been released into the wild, so we can post it here.

Italics told Entertainment Weekly:

I was immediately struck by the beautiful nervous paranoia of the lyrics, which lent themselves very well to a trip to a psychoanalyst’s couch. To compliment the band’s unique modern take on vintage synth pop, I chose to resurrect and repurpose the long-forgotten educational filmstrip, an archaic blip in technological history that went the way of the dodo as soon as VCRs became economically feasible for public schools in the 1980s.
