“Small Hands,” a Stunning New Bittersweet Video for Keaton Henson

Keaton Henson “Small Hands”

Written and directed by Joseph Mann, this video is a complete mastery of puppetry – comprised of these intricately designed scenes of an almost magical forest that’s filled with these incredibly detailed woodland creatures living amongst themselves in nature. In short, it’s about nature, the survival of the fittest, the fact that we (no matter in human or animal form) are simply afraid at times to go through life… alone.

Once you start playing the video, the music leads you into the forest and you’re introduced into this fantastic world – even if it’s only for a few minutes. And while you’re watching in a gaze, you find yourself forgetting for those brief moments that you’re watching puppets or even listening to a song… and that, my friends, is a mark of excellence with this piece. I totally lost myself in this video and now, because of that, I have to seek out more music by Keaton to see what else I might be missing…
