Loneliness becomes better when animated and musically embedded.

Bedlam is set in a vast icy cavern where an insurmountable wall of ice separates a man and woman. They must find a way to reach each other before it's too late....

The music video to accompany Kevin Pearce's song Bedlam (featuring Olly Knights of Turin Brakes and Tom Mcrae) is directed by London-based animator Tom Sanders and William Long.

Sometimes even animation needs to get into a still mood, and the silhouetted design and elliptical movements of the main character highlight beautifully the handicapped nature of loneliness.
