My Morning Jacket “Touch Me I'm Going To Scream, Part 2”

Directed by Jesse Casey, Michelle Higa Fox, and Chris Lenox Smith

Set deep in a verdant jungle on a dark night, “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2” stars a furry, timid creature with gigantic eyes. Mixtape Club drew from an array of inspirations such as the BBC’s “Planet Earth”, foliage plucked from the streets of New York City, and the work of Russian animator Yuri Norstein. The jungle world was built entirely from elements painted digitally. The finished product is a haunting, seemingly hand-painted, lonely story with a touch of fairy tale sweetness.

“Touch Me I’m Going To Scream, Part 2” been selected for official competition in the 2009 Slamdance Film Festival and Worldwide Short Film Festival. It was published in Stash 49. It is also listed as one of the Best Music Videos of 2008 by MTV2’s Subterranean/Paste Magazine and UGO.
