Seriously, how amazing is this strata-cut technique? We thought we’ve seen in all in David Wilson‘s gorgeous stop-motion for “Listening To The Records On My Wall“, yet the talented director Andrew Thomas Huang has proved us wrong again and again. However, Huang doesn’t just use, he also perfects and innovates and his latest work for Atoms for Peace’s “Before Your Very Eyes” music video makes not exception. Blink Ink offered a piece of insight into the film-making process: “Having filmed Thom Yorke in LA, live footage and stop frame sets were then re-worked in CG, in order to turn the singer into an Ozymandias-style statue in the desert. Meticulous work was then done in the BlinkInk studio, using specially written VFX programs to cope with Andrew’s vision for the design and animation. The result is an eye-melting tour of mountain ranges, crumbling cities, and psychedelic cave systems, all pulsating to the tones of Atoms for Peace.” See more tips and tricks from behind-the-scenes, in this making of:
