In the first instance of the new video for Flying Lotus’ “Tiny Tortures” we see Elijah wood lying disconsolate on his bed, and I was reminded of the series premiere of Wood’s current vehicle Wilfred. However, whereas that TV show would then go on to show Wood cracking wise with a man in a dog suit, the video for “Tiny Tortures” unsurprisingly takes a different route. Using director David Lewandowski’s experience in visual effects, the video moves through a series of surreal and dreamlike sequences in which Wood’s character seems both serene and terrified, almost as if he’s been sucked into the visual manifestation of the song itself. Check out the video for “Tiny Tortures” below.
