    Oh that is SO nice! The animation suits the character design, the character design suits the premise, and it’s put together seamlessly! A little piece of perfection!

  • Mic

    I LOVE IT!

    I lead a sheltered life, so this is all strange and new to me, but you can listen to the entire, narratively connected album on the Evelyn Evelyn website. It’s as clever and fascinating as — and weirder and darkly funnier than — this animated video, which itself is amazing. I … recommend it?

    (Quasimike is currently unavailable for any kind of coherent commentary on this video, as he is currently dancing around the room like a sugar-buzzed 8 year old on crack with a smile wider than should be physically possible.)

    BTW,Quasimike is my childhood nickname, one I chose myself after watching Charles Laughton in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. 8 years old and calling myself that…thank God for therapy. And also for this post, so I could become 8 years old again for a couple of minutes!

    Nice video! The song wasn’t too bad, either.

    • Tony

      What??? The song is great!

  • Bob Harper

    WOW! We need more of this kind of stuff!!!!

    Very well done and fun.

    Amazing how many more animated music videos we are seeing in the last few years it seems.

    I am credited on this project as a “VFX Consultant” after I didn’t have time to do the compositing on the project (I had worked with Adam Bolt on another project before this), and I helped conceive and supervise how the tracking/compositing work would go, and to be honest, even I don’t really know how they pulled it off (congrats to everyone, principal photography on this was way back in the beginning of March, 2010!

    Very good. I also love the animated video for their song Sandy Fishnets. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmTf-l1sD_E

    Aaaaand now I suddenly *care* who this “Evelyn Evelyn* is.
    Everyting from the song to the animation to the composing of the women (of ill-repute?) in the background add up to a cute-and-dirty vibe, just the way I like these things.
    I ventured on into “Sandy Fishnets” after viewing this twice, and I’m entranced.
