Opening Sequence

An experimental animated music video by Sophie Thompson

Opening Sequence is a single featured on the new EP album by producer, DANJY.

The album, 'Oldeuboi’ is a 5-track EP which is directly inspired by the Korean cult-classic ‘Oldboy’. The EP follows the final two scenes of the film through sampling and the overall mood of the tracks. It aims to create an audio-visual experience as each track is accompanied by a music video using original footage taken from around Seoul.

Opening Sequence is the only animated music video of the album. It takes you on a journey through Seoul from day to night, through dark alley ways, onto the Hangang River through dingy under passages, aiming to provoke feelings replicated by the film.
