"VHS" is a stop-motion animation that utilizes VHS tape as the main focus. The non-linear narrative references many films and music videos. The characters are drawn on the videotapes using permanent markers and are loosely based on musicians; Alice Glass from Crystal Castles, Ian Curtis from Joy Division, Damon Albarn from Blur, Julian Casablancas from The Strokes, Victoria Legrand from Beach House, and members of the band Warpaint. Each character’s background color alludes to a specific music genre and style.
