Mrzyk & MoriceauMrzyk & Moriceau

Mrzyk & Moriceau, the dynamic duo of the music video industry, are renowned for their distinctive, recognizable, and often wittily provocative style of animation, epitomizing a fascinating mixture of pop art and surrealism. Their music videos are like an unexpected trip through a rabbit hole, taking the viewer to an unsystematic world filled with suggestive fruit, excreting birds, polymorphous silhouettes, and more. Pushing the boundaries of contemporary animation, both Petra Mrzyk and Jean-Francois Moriceau have brought a creative edge to the world of music, collaborating with an impressive roster of artists, from Sebastien Tellier's "Look" to the Rolling Stones' "Rain Fall Down" and Air's "Sing Sang Sung".

It's difficult to pinpoint their most impactful video as most of their works have left indelible imprints on the industry. Still, a noteworthy milestone in their career is the mesmerizing Black & White video for The Avalanches' "Subways". In it, a day in the bustling city turns into a fantastical journey, where canine residents read newspapers and animals transmogrify into trains. Another amusing side-note about Mrzyk & Moriceau's work is their love for inserting cheeky messages within their videos. In the video for "DoYaThing" by Gorillaz featuring James Murphy and Andre 3000, for example, they tucked in a hidden message that read "The future is now, Sleep!" in the bedroom scene. This kind of playful detail certainly simulates their audience's persistent engagement. Couple this with their innovative storytelling approach, Mrzyk & Moriceau have no doubt transformed the music video industry into an endless playground of curiosity, creativity and unending wonder.
