During the making of this video I spent a good amount of nights working in my bedroom till dawn.
I usually put on some movies and tv series I already watched to create some background noise while working, using a laptop sitting next to my main screen.
At some point I decided to go straight through all 6 seasons of Breaking Bad for the second time and that’s probably what most influenced the New Mexico-like landscapes of Tears of Fire.
While the idea of a girl driving alone in the desert comes from The Cardigans’ “My favourite game” music video, which is one of my favourite music videos ever.
“Clint Eastwood” by Gorillaz was also a major influence, but that’s kind of obvious I guess.
For what concerning the character design, my main references were Jamie Hewlett, Robert Valley and Max Fleischer.
