Modeselektor recruit the services of French graphic designer François Chalet to animate their latest visual “Berlin.” The idea came up after Chalet called up Modeselektor’s label, Monkeytown asking if the Berlin act would play at his wedding. Coincidentally, the label was looking for a replacement animator to make their video. Check out what Chalet did that enabled his dream wedding being fulfilled. His words are also included below:
We want to get married, and we want Modeselektor to play there … They’ll NEVER come and play at a wedding … And we wouldn’t be able to afford them … Weeks later I emailed Monkeytown Records in order to prove to Meike, my future wife, that this idea will always stay an idea … One day later at the phone – Monkeytown: “You contacted us at the perfect moment – we urgently need a good video because someone flaked on us!” One Skype conversation with Modeselektor … 3 weeks of hard work and little sleep … cardboard everywhere … lots of computer crashes and … Modeselektor will play at our wedding – hurray!
