Lucky Elephant – ‘Edgar’

Music video I wrote and directed for Lucky Elephant. The music video follows a small toy robot as he travels to a homemade rocket, and flies 95,000 feet up into space. The space scenes were filmed for real, using a small HD camera and a helium weather balloon. You can read the project blog here.

  1. [..YouTube..] Amazing guys !

  2. [..YouTube..] @freeridefrolic Hey owen, used a weather balloon which carried the robot, a
    parachute, GoPro HD Camera, and a GPS tracker up to 95,000 feet before it
    popped and came back down to earth!

  3. [..YouTube..] fuckin awesome.

  4. [..YouTube..] Amahzing. x

  5. [..YouTube..] I’m proud to live in Bournemouth now!

  6. [..YouTube..] Absolutely beautiful! Favourited!

  7. [..YouTube..] Nice

  8. [..YouTube..] @kempharry that was the popped baloon

  9. [..YouTube..] I’m lost on the language the song is being sung in. Is it French? The music
    is really nice.

  10. [..YouTube..] @divauno Nope it’s English :) He mostly sings “Farmer in my own farm, In
    out and far, From the high ceilings. In my right pocket my hand, In the
    other one strong little biscuits…” throughout the song.

  11. [..YouTube..] I actually watched the other video 1st (the making of the rocket scene)
    glad i came here afterwards,love the song! :)

  12. [..YouTube..] Edgar is my name too! ^.^

  13. [..YouTube..] edgars the man…or the robot

  14. [..YouTube..] Very enjoyable. Thanks for putting in the extra effort, it shows.

  15. [..YouTube..] Interesting idea! Great vid! I’d emphasize the drums a bit more in the mix though, they sound nice.

  16. [..YouTube..] WOW. Amazing video concept and a great song!

  17. [..YouTube..] I’d like so much to be Edgar.. Seeing girls from the bottom and watching the world like a boss!

  18. [..YouTube..] I live in Bournemouth hehe. Love this song!

  19. [..YouTube..] That’s waaaay outside the box.

  20. [..YouTube..] Is this filmed in Bourmouth? x

  21. [..YouTube..] I have listened to Lucky Elephant before but never saw this until right now. I was pleasantly led here while I was watching weather balloon videos, and saw the making of this. So, I’m sickly obsessed with robots and this made my heart swell so much. This makes me SO happy. I have a sleeve of my favorite robots started on my left arm… I’ve named this video-robot Edgar, and I’m very excited about getting him inked as part of my sleeve. Where can I get my own robot copy? Brand, store, etc…?

  22. [..YouTube..] @ninaeatsnoodles Thanks! Great to hear you like the video and the robot! :) Since making the video, I’ve seen the robot for sale in a couple of comic book stores and also on eBay. The robot is called ‘Mechanical Planet Robot’ made by ‘Ha Ha Toy’ – you should be able to find it on Google.

  23. [..YouTube..] I loved this video so much I bought my own edgar :)

  84. [..YouTube..] Hi All. Well I am surprised no one caught this yet! Your Edgar is none other than Robbie the Robot who made his 1st appearance in the Movie Forbidden Planet in 1956.
    Starring: Walter Pidgeon, Leslie Nielsen, Anne Francis
    This movie is a cult classic and should be seen by all SciFi Fans!

    feet above earth.
