Diana Schoenbrun and Andy Cahill's video for singer-songwriter Kevin Devine’s "Off-Screen" follows a one-eyed ginger puppet as he struggles to cross a barren desert landscape full of mirages and hungry vultures. Everything about the concept seems strange – wrong, even – but it works. "The 'Off-Screen' video came together in my mind when I first saw Diana Schoenbrun's Beasties exhibit at a cafe near my apartment in Brooklyn," Devine tells Rolling Stone. "I imagined something kind of hand-spun, analog, hallucinogenic, a creeping stop-motion sort of aesthetic." It may seem more creepy than creeping, but the result is a clip that’s both unique and enthralling.
