Stop Motion Glory

I Love Music Videos,
They seem to be this perfect packaging for new ideas, experimental techniques and neat little stories set to a cool soundtrack. Of course like with everything there are duds, Clips cut uncreatively from performance footage or 4 minutes of sheer self indulgence and wankerism but in the most part they allow filmmakers to do what they love to do and have fun with it, just look at clips from bands like Weezer and OK GO as well as the collections of videos created by Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry.

The Reason for this rant is because Gotye has released his new video for “Easy Way Out” This is a cool video, one worthy of its own post. Directed by Darcy Prendergast who has created videos for Eskimo Joe, Art vs Science and also created Gotye’s “Eyes Wide Open” Video. The Stop Motion in it is incredible and well planned out, and in some ways gives the format a different feel almost to the point where you question if it is stop motion at all. The Set Design is detailed and allows for many watchings.

Bout time for some Feedback so tell me, whats your favorite music video?
