While he'll soon be gracing screens around the world once again as Frodo in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," Elijah Wood has been keen to keep of a diverse array of projects outside the franchise. He's launched his own horror production company and has number of genre flicks on his slate, and his latest endeavor finds him losing an arm. Not literally of course.

Flying Lotus Elijah Wood

While he'll soon be gracing screens around the world once again as Frodo in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," Elijah Wood has been keen to keep of a diverse array of projects outside the franchise. He's launched his own horror production company and has number of genre flicks on his slate, and his latest endeavor finds him losing an arm. Not literally of course.

The actor stars in the new video from rising electronic act Flying Lotus and it's a pretty trippy, nicely conceived spot. Directed by David Lewandowski -- the lead graphics animator on "Tron: Legacy" and upcoming "Oblivion" -- the video finds Wood playing a man missing his right arm, who seems to wake up in a dream (or goes on a drug induced mind adventure) and finds the objects in his room coming together to given him a new arm. It's a simple premise, but really well done and the music serves as an effective accompaniment in addition to just being a great track.

Watch below and check out the "making of" video right after. Flying Lotus' Until The Quiet Comes is in stores now. [Pitchfork]
