Found Objects was filmed in Autumn 2011 in area called ‘the three parks’ in Newcastle Under Lyme.
In 2011, Maps and Diagrams approached Daniel Hopkins to see if he’d be interested in making four music videos to coincide with the release of two new albums on Ian Hawgood’s Nomadic Kids Republic label, based in Japan. As a result of this request Daniel Hopkins has produced four videos for the Maps and Diagrams songs: Images, Distant Thoughts / Circa / One Kind of Blue and Found Objects. The songs feature on both the Lights Will Call On You and The Town Beneath The Sea albums on Nomadic Kids Republic. Each visual segment takes inspiration from the music and track titles which, combined with Daniel’s cinematic interpretation assembles both the music and visual form into four unified but also contrasting pieces of work.
