Some Idealistic Future: an Unprecedented Look at 10 Year History of The Postal Service by The Creators Project

The Postal Service has now had its unique journey examined and chronicled by The Creators Project, a partnership between Intel and VICE. Viewers are given an intimate look at the band and its process: from the dressing room to the digital (re)construction of the music to the moment the band takes the stage.

Directed by Justin Mitchell, this is a one of a kind look at one of the most beloved acts of the past decade. Mitchell says of the project: “I’ve been looking for a project to use prisms on for a while and much like the multiple frames, I think they help to support the story of the band. For me the prisms represent a gathering of all the disparate energies that propelled the album upwards and onwards during the last ten years. The band might be the center of the image and the focus but for ten years they allowed Give Up to live its own life and somehow, all that outside energy resulted in a platinum album. Now, as Ben says, they get to reclaim it and I think the prism (which just looked so much cooler in slow motion) helps to show that. ” Read the rest of the interview with Justin Mitchell on The Creators Project HERE
