One of the big tasks was creating the surreal skies that were key to the look the director wanted to achieve. These were painted on the massive backdrop on set and using inferno I extended the skies past ceiling. The painted backdrop had no real life to it so I also had to imbue motion into using live action cloud footage and by warping the existing painted backdrop.
The wolf in the video had to appear massive. This was done for some shots using a miniature set within which the wolf appeared to be twenty feet tall. In other shots it was isolated and reintroduced into shots of a smaller scale, with appropriate non-existent shadows, in Inferno. It also had to appear to be mouse-sized as it enters the house. In a similar fashion, camera angles were matched for shots of different scale and integrated.

when people ask me about songs that tori’s covered, this is always one of my examples. her interpretation is sonically miles away from slayer’s original, but the intent is spot on. the slayer version describes a “banished soul awakened and hungry for vengeance.”
tori took it in, felt the motives & the energy behind it, stripped it down and ripped it apart, and gave us her take on the song: “i was reading about what was going on in afghanistan - the way women were being oppressed … when i heard that song, i just imagined a huge juicy vagina coming out of the sky, raining blood over all those racist, misogynist fuckers”
“Rattlesnakes” was written by Lloyd Cole and The Commotions and its first release was in 1984. The original version is quite different from Tori’s one, but the theme is really familiar to Amos: the song talks about a girl who went through a miscarriage, and this made her depressive, lonely, apathetic. Indeed, the character that represents this song girl, created with Neil Gaiman, is described as the one that “rides rollercoasters but never screams when they plummet or twist and upside down”.
My favorite verse from this one is: “It’s so hard to love when love was your great disappointment” ♥
