Every week we kick your Friday off with a series of videos, loosely gathered around a theme. This week, follow-up to last week’s animated videos, with Stop-Motion Videos!
Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer The video that sparked the idea for this post. A classic song and a classic video. This neatly illustrates the lasting, yet anachronistic feel of stop motion. It’s weirdly unique, both fresh and charmingly quaint at the same time.
Out Of A Forest – (Slow Show by The National) Not technically a music video, but this remarkable short film, by Tobias Gundorff Boesen, is set to one of The National’s best songs off Boxer. I strongly recommend watching the video in high def.
End Love – Ok Go Ok Go makes such great videos that it’s almost cheating to include them on a list like this. Nevertheless, here they are again, showing the versatility of time-shifting using stop-motion as a technique. Pretty ‘effin sweet, especially when they do the drawn out stomp.
