Modest Mouse Missed the Boat video contest

It only seems fitting to writting about a mouse, and a modest mouse at that on a kat blog and a fat one at that...

Check out this wonderful video by Max Tyrie for the Apple video contest!

This was his submission in the Apple Music Video competition. And what a great entry!

Here's what Max went on to say about this project:

"Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each "shot" of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!"

Very well done, and I guess the KISS approach is sometimes better than what we would all expect.

Have a good one!
