Trunk Animation directors Alasdair + Jock have teamed up with iconic art house Hipgnosis to deliver this stunning promo for Pink Floyd band member David Gilmour's latest solo single, Rattle That Lock.

With a brief to reference Gustave Doré’s mid-19th Century illustrations for John Milton's Paradise Lost, the project needed a team who could not only bring the intricately detailed etchings to life but could do so in a manner that captured the depth, drama and scale of both Gilmour’s song and Milton's poem.

The result is a beautifully-crafted music video following Satan as he takes on new forms, starting as the beautiful yet fearful Fallen Angel before he is re-born as a sinister, masterful Cormorant and finally transforming into a small Serpent that wreaks havoc on the virgin Earth.

Hipgnosis is behind some of the most iconic images in music history for the likes of Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Peter Gabriel, Black Sabbath, 10CC and Pink Floyd, and the promo is the latest impressive piece of work out of the studio.
