'We Won't Break' is a digital cut-out animation where the characters in the paintings by Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel come to life through the music of 'Zoot Woman'. They leave their canvases using a variety of vehicles to have a party together.
Along their journey small accidents happen, but they all get there eventually.
The video is created by Mirjam Baker and Michael Kren, two students of the university of applied sciences in St. Pölten, Austria and originated as a student project. As the soundtrack for their animation they chose an older song by 'Zoot Woman' called 'Taken it All' and after completion they uploaded it to the online video portal Youtube where Adam Blake, the drummer of the band saw the video and because he and the rest of the band liked it so much, they asked Mirjam and Michael if they want to produce the next video for 'Zoot Woman'.
Because there wasn't much time until the new single 'We Won't Break' was to be releaed an agreement was made to alter the existing video to fit to the new song. The video is in fact the very first animation by Mirjam Baker and Michael Kren.
