M83 is proud to announce the winners of the “We Own The Sky” video contest: Alex Takacs and Joe Nankin of Young Replicant. M83, a.k.a. Anthony Gonzalez, personally chose the winning video saying “I like the atmosphere of this video. It fits perfectly with the music and lyrics and is exactly what I had in mind when I wrote the song.” Young Replicant is a teenage director’s label and design collective consisting of Alex Takacs (Director, DP), Joe Nankin (Director, Producer), Adam Kauper (DP, Camera Operator), and Jackson Siedenberg (Special Effects). This video was directed by Takacs and Nankin.
