Wowzy, this brain tickling promo directed by Jack Kubizne for Animal Collective, debuts as an abstract interpretation of the ‘snake charming’ rituals by featuring an old man commanding a dancing rope. However don’t be fooled! Despite the euphoric hypnotizing beginning, as the music video progresses it also starts elaborating interesting subjects such as: the elder controlling and arguably ruining the lives of youths, a seemingly ‘innocent’ technology gaining power over a group of individuals, the ‘oppressor’  becoming the ‘oppressed’… All these, while the visuals evolve from a live action equilibrium to a psychedelic chaotic manifestation! Credits: Directed by Jack Kubizne Producer – Patrick James Ryan Director of Photography – Brian Leisring Production Designer – Julianne Irene Set Designer – Benjamin Spinrad Costumes and Props – Benjamin Spinrad & Julianne Irene Hair and Makeup – Brittan White Lead Animator – Steve Winfield Meyer Stop Motion Animator – Vince Cretara Motion Graphics – Tommi Gweilo Stop Motion DP – John Miles Codding VFX & Matchmoving Artist – Sam Roe

    2Pause | Freezing Music Video Culture

    The world of music videos has traditionally provided a perfect breeding ground to test new visual styles, VFX and editing techniques. It has also proven to be an extraordinary springboard for some of todays most acclaimed film directors, such as Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Michel Gondry, to name but three. 2Pause is the second installment of our curated music video website. The old Pause website is still online here.
