why repost?

captainmarc22, April 8, 2006 at 5:03:48 PM CEST

that was excellent. We've been on stop motion overload recently but that did great justice to a great song - good mix of using the band, the theme, etc. And a storyline with a clever ending. Wow, a good Sub Pop video, go figure.

I'm 99% sure it's the guy who did the Shins "Pink Bullets" video, Adam Bizanski. He's probably got one of the most amazing director websites I've seen - takes a bit to find everything, though.

great great great. yeah, it was bizanski.

arno-s, April 8, 2006 at 6:10:56 PM CEST

go adambiz!! This guy has so much patience, he should go into politics once he's tired of making music videos. that was great!

Love it! :)

Adam Bizanski is a great director. I loved the machine-powered band. Beautiful.

itsall: where/when was this already posted?

progosk, April 8, 2006 at 10:50:47 PM CEST

so much goodness in this. some of their performance bits look so natural you'd think he shot them live and then recreated the scene painstakingly. the story's wonderfully self-deprecating, and perfectly told. the band-contraption is funny but spooky at the same time. and the factory-worker choreography? chapeau, adambiz. (april's looking good, so far.)

kevathens, April 8, 2006 at 11:49:05 PM CEST

Excellent - I thought the same thing about the performance bits.

Miss Cleo says Adam's reel will keep getting better. In a fair world these good videos we see here would get real airplay on MTV/2 (MTV used to rotate even Kate Bush as recent as 1993!).

Thanks guys, it's really great to hear! ..Slightly better quality in this torrent file, if anyone is interested.

otaku-house, April 9, 2006 at 11:42:12 AM CEST

Hell yes... Thanks for the torrent, Adam. I was seriously worried about what video this band would end up with... All laid to rest now. Absolutely amazing. Am I right you did this on ones? How long did it take you? And did you light it? It has such beautiful lighting; which I feel some people overlook in stop motion.

lusk81, April 9, 2006 at 3:46:48 PM CEST

Really Great! At first, didn't like seeing the band play but loved how that segued into the 'modern world' finale.

tommyg, April 9, 2006 at 6:08:37 PM CEST

The only thing I didn't like was when members of the band started singing. It looked a little odd since their mouths looked as if they were sewn shut or something. But that's a minor grievance and it may have been intentional/unavoidable. Overall, it was outstanding.

hakai, April 9, 2006 at 8:49:21 PM CEST

Yes this is really great! Good job Adam!

adambiz, April 9, 2006 at 9:59:35 PM CEST

Thanks again all! I did shoot on ones..It took me about five months to complete this one, lighting included (ikea generic lamps + some improvised dimmers).

dek, April 10, 2006 at 9:11:14 PM CEST

Here's the version posted by adambiz, recompressed to fit the file size limit.

otaku-house, April 10, 2006 at 9:36:49 PM CEST

Seeing the higher quality version... Man, this is so damn good. I love how you even animated those floating camera moves. Only April and this is one of my favorites of the year, definitely. I bet Dan loves it.

clairesquare, April 12, 2006 at 9:50:33 PM CEST

Really nice video. There seems to be so much half hearted stop motion these days it was so nice to see some skilled puppetry work. The precision and thoughtfulness with which you were able to recreate human movement was very compelling.
