Nice! For more music video enjoyment check out Bob Schneider’s Come With Me Tonight.

Amazing. How often do you see such a perfect integration of concept and content?

For some reason, I’m not convinced it’s entirely stop motion animation. They could jsut have easily laid empty blue frames on top of each other and filled in the footage with a computer.

And the penny in the picture implies these photos are on the small size. who takes a gazillion pictures that are 3 penny-diameters tall.

i know the guy who made this video and it’s definitely stop motion… it was all shot with a canon G2 and then printed out 15 photos to an 8 by 10 sheet using a home printer (the photos are at 6 fps)… he cut the photos down and then stacked them up one by one and shot them on DV… this video cost almost nothing — just the cost of a couple of ink cartridges and 30 sheets of glossy photo paper (and the coins and stick of gum…)
