Say Something

by Syd Briscoe

Kodaline: “Say Something” - 4 mins

This whimsical promo for Kodaline's 'Say Something' takes a unique approach to going out during quarantine. Directed by Stevie Russell and starring his young daughter Willow, the film follows a would-be astronaut's journey to getting off this rock.

The action unfolds in charming fashion as the pint-sized cosmonaut appears to construct a space ship from household materials. We particularly like the use of fruit pastilles for decoration, along with the carefully finger-painted outer panels.

With animated flourishes adding extra sparkle to the craft's inaugural trip to the stars, this promo offers an unexpectedly touching look at the limitless possibilities of childhood imagination. After all, a stint off-world sounds pretty good right now.

Director: Stevie Russell
