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

Posted 27 June 2017 Interview by Indi Davies

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. As one fifth of Cristobal and the Sea, Elliott serves as one of the band’s core members as well as managing all of their supporting visuals.
