See all Visionaries >

From sewing machines to space, it's a hell of a ride. For "Tharsis Sleeps", a track from London heavy metal band Throne, Nicos Livesey and his animator-in-arms Tom Bunker took inspiration from band patches and, with the help of a few industrial sewing machines, pounded out an estimated 45 million stitches to create the world's first frame-by-frame embroidered music video. The duo are members of the illustrious This Is It film collective, which counts ex-Visionaries Becky & Joe among their ranks. Read our interview with director Nicos Livesey on how the laborious process behind the space-age music video here.
