Coolest video this year: Try Telling That To Your Baby by Montreal’s Fluorescent Hill, a directing team comprised of Mark Lomond, Johanne Ste-Marie and Darren Pasemko. The song isn’t so great, but the visuals are superb. More stuff here.
Lomond writes a bit about the production of the video:
The video is made from several thousand photos of candy, which were then digitally painted and composited together. Animation was completed with cg cutouts, stop motion, video, and plain ol’ drawings. The mouths are all 2d and although we were tempted to go 3d for the bulk of the project, we opted for ulcers, headaches, and passion.
