A Word on Music Videos

Music videos can be pretty uninspired-- I think there's been a trend of filming on some dark sound stage with big colored lights or a giant screen in the background in the past few years. Think about it, "Speed of Sound," "Car Crash," "Somebody Told Me," and there are probably more. There's one video though, that I've been watching lately that's nothing like that. I think it was Papa Approximately who told me about "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel. It's a good song but I'm just mostly impressed by how they put together such intricate stop-motion animation before non-linear editing existed. Take a look. It's pretty cool.
