Description

The official video for Mifune, I created all the artwork and animation for this music video.

The song is from Scowlin Owl's EP, 'These Strange Companions', available now from Bandcamp for £5 - http://scowlinowl.bandcamp.com or on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify...

It's a folk song about the relationship between Japan's most famous actor Toshiro Mifune and legendary film director Akira Kurosawa, with references to the film Seven Samurai. Mifune and Kurosawa's relationship was the foundation for some of the best samurai movies of all time. Lyrics by Nina Lovelace, Music by Scowlin Owl.
