Parts of the Process — How filmmaker Elliott Arndt made the most of his network, and Facebook, to create his latest music video for City Slang
Creating psychedelic worlds and wonderfully weird characters, Elliott Arndt is a London-based musician and filmmaker with a fast-growing reputation for striking video pieces. Since graduating from London College of Communication in 2014, his output has included over 15 music videos for various artists and a short film for Channel 4’s Random Acts series, commissioned by the ICA.
