Zero 7 - Futures (Feat. Jose Gonzalez)

"Duckeye take a bird's eye view in this nice low-budget Zero 7 clip."
Very cool idea. Great execution. Reminds me of those ariel shots in Koyannisqatsi.
I really enjoyed this video. Concept is fantastic, and reasonable for the small budget. Overall, I enjoyed the handmade and organic quality of the animation. Pacing is well thought out.
My only thought is that the shots in the last third - directly before the final views of the landscapes peeling back - seem to break the concept. Many of the glowing city lights in this section don't match the landscapes, and it's this matching of the graphics with the underlying landscapes that is so enjoyable about the rest of the video.
Overall, though, it's an awesome video - one of my favorite Zero 7 vids.
pretty tedious (but then so's the track...)
