Salvation Sunday – Heart In Motion

“Heart In Motion” was Salvation Sunday’s second single for Polydor. Music producer was Ed Stasium (Ramones, Julian Cope), the promo video was shot in Feb. 1987 in a film studio in Middlesex, UK on 16mm film, much of it using “stop-frame animation” which basically meant each 1/24 second was shot like a still frame on a normal camera – like “Wallis and Gromit” except with real people – it took all day! This technique was, and still is, very unusual for a pop video due to it’s complexity. It was directed by Nick Brandt (Michael Jackson – Earth song, Stranger in Moscow etc).

Phil Gil commented …..Nice – very empty and understated and it works. Everything to a minimum and implied, which leaves a lot of room for the song to to breathe, but the groove’s still there. And now I can’t get it out of my head
