'Memory' is a music video to the song of the same name by the internationally acclaimed British band 'Zoot Woman' that tells the story of a man who can't let go of a lost relationship. It is a mixture of live action and hand drawn rotoscoped animation.
The protagonist wanders through the city, visiting places that remind him of his past relationship. With him he carries a box of seemingly empty slides but when he looks through them, his lost love reappears before him as hand drawn animation. But when his past girlfriend suddenly touches him, his realities start to shift...
Memory is the second video Mirjam and Michael - who are studying Media Technology at the University Of Applied Sciences in St. Poelten, Austria - directed and produced for 'Zoot Woman', who gave them complete artistic freedom. Memory is the second single from Zoot Woman's critically acclaimed third album "Things Are
What They Used To Be" which was released in September 2009.
