This anachronistic video features a stunning blend of live action and VFX work and is based around madness in the sky as a result of a conductor leading a frenzy of Tiger Moth planes and Zeppelins. Add the Victorian stately home, its tea party guests, a butler and a proud conductor being over run by the Tiger Moths and you have some pretty stunning shots. Choreographed to the track, the planes pass through vast skyline shots of central London, eventually grouping in abundance with their Zeppelin cousins to fill the skies with a swarm-like transcendence.
