Rock Bottom Riser

ROCK BOTTOM RISER is a sublime music video by Australians Paul McNeil and Brendan Cook for the band Smog. The visuals, painted traditionally and animated in After Effects, at turns evoke Joan Mir– and Raymond Pettibon, but the overall effect is original and completely captivating. The video can be viewed at the Submarine Channel. If you’re headed to the Ottawa Animation Festival later this week, be sure to check out the video in Competition #4 and give a well deserved pat on the back to attending filmmaker Brendan Cook.
