The idea was simply to film peoples pets. The mysterious music was intended to offset the images of the pets to make them seem more disturbing than they usually are. Or maybe they are disturbing. We had fun going to peoples houses and seeing what would happen with their animals. Most of the time we didn’t get what we wanted as it is difficult for pets to act. but sometimes we would get really funny moments. It was fun to do something where you don’t have a clue what the outcome was going to be. Thanks to drew O’Neill the producer, Arthur Loveday the D.O.P., Maria Cecilia for all sorts, Lara Lancereau and Sarah Espeute for helping with the concept. And thanks to the pets and owners and Metronomy fans that took part.

From the Internet Center for the Unrelenting Study of Baby Animal Cuteness, Zooborns: Orphan Walrus Comforted at Alaska SeaLife Center.
his past Saturday, local fisherman spotted an orphan Pacific Walrus calf on floating ice near Barrow, Alaska. After a period of observation from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a rescue was approved and Alaska SeaLife Center staff and a local veterinarian prepared the 200lb. baby for airlift to Anchorage and transport by modified truck to ASLC in Seward.
The calf is suckling readily from a bottle, feeding every three hours around the clock, and consuming nearly 1,400 calories at each feed. He is actively seeking attention from care-givers, and vocalizing when left alone. “Walrus are incredibly tactile, social animals,” said Stranding Coordinator Tim Lebling. “Walrus calves typically spend about two years with their mothers, so we have to step in to provide that substitute care and companionship.” Walrus calves almost immediately habituate to human care and therefore are not candidates for release following rehabilitation.
