Wintersleep, "Jaws of Life", Dir. Sean Wainsteim (with James Mejia).

jaws of life still.

A surreal urban environment filled with animals struggling with their humanity, bizarre gems, a giant transforming robotic deer on a rampage and much more.

hey sean, I generally loathe these types of videos but I liked this one. seemed technically adept and somewhat original. I do hope your next one is live action though, the last thing this industry needs is another animation director. sorry folks

thanks for the comment, trans. funny stuff.
not to worry - next video is live-action (but it involves a puppet). I generally bounce back and forth between live-action and animation...with frequent stops inbetween.
why the hatred on animation directors? why not just all music video directors...there are a lot of those types around these days. cagey characters, the lot of 'em.

A high number of antville regulars hate computer assistance in all of its forms. Directors win big points on here if they do everything in-camera, even if the end result less than interesting. I like your animation and I hope you stick with it.

hey, that's not entirely accurate. I hate most stop motion as well.

almost too chock-a-block o' stuff, this'un. great sense of rhythm&humour, tho.

Oh lordy...I'm enjoyin' this culture lesson on antville. killer.
I hear ya on computer assistance but I personally don't think an animated video is computer assistance. I'm a post guy/animator who generally hates post and I try and do as much in camera and "authentically" as possible. Non of which would help trans_alts dislike of stop-motion...(the first "paid" thing I ever directed was a stop-motion clay animated'd have hated it).

I ain't gonna post 'em 'cause they're over a year old (no offense to any recent reposters). But I will drop a link to a couple of older spots in case anyone is curious:
This one is pretty fun but there are a few post tricks - mostly in camera long take:

Pretty much all in camera - some great half mirror tricks...playing with disolves here folks:

I like the music in these as well. but that's just me. sorry for the long post...for those that get to it.
