Ghostbot Vid For No More Kings

Pete Mitchell, frontman of the band No More Kings, writes to Cartoon Brew:

“i’ve checked cartoonbrew pretty much every day for the past year and a half, and it never ceases to provide inspiration. i’ve always been a huge fan of ghostbot‘s work, and i finally had the pleasure of hiring them to animate my new music video.”

The music video, for their song “Michael (Jump In),” can be seen below. More behind-the-scenes details about the production of the animation are being posted both at the band’s blog and on the Ghostbot blog.

    Great video for a great song. Check out the demo Reel on Ghostbot.com – incredible design and flash animation – they know how to get the most out of Flash. A spectacular reel

    Really great work- I love that great TV series you do– oh wait, those are Esurance commercials! Coulda fooled me- but that’s the point, you folks always deliver the best entertainment value, even if it comes in guise of a 60 second insurance ad!

    Is this song also the theme of the New Knight Rider series? “Not that I’d ever DREAM of Hasslin’ the Hoff- don’t cha know!HooHooHoo!” Ed Wynn’s voice popped in my head as I wrote this, for what reason, I have no idea.

    Not to mention an amazing piece of flashwork!

    Loved that video, especially where he saves that sports car-type thing from getting hit by the trolley, but that song – that was just horrible!
    So it’s not really my thing, ah well.

    Ah, No More Kings! Cute video, although I was kinda hoping they’d do an animated video for “Zombie Me”.

    Thanks Brew for getting helping to add another great band to my animation lab playlist.

    The commenting doesn’t seemt o be eneabled on Pete’s blog so I’ll leave it here:
    “How lucky I found you guys from Cartoon brew! Thanks so much for posting the production stuff, it’s really interesting how the process moves along. You all and Ghostbot really kicked out a fantastic and incredibly charming video.

    Keep up the great work! No More Kings has a nice new batch of fans in Baltimore :)

    My cousin was very lucky and still is. His band rocks, and this video will let you sample the best band in the world! But dont take my word for it — listen to it and you won’t regret it!
