My new favorite music video

Oren Lavie, a singer/songwriter from Tel Aviv made this fantastic music video (actually more like a human clay-mation dream sequence set to music) entitled 'Her Morning Elegance'.  I can't even imagine how long it took to do all the still photography and then piece it together, but every time I watch it I see some new detail that is packed with meaning.

Feel free to close the Google ad which sometimes blocks part of the frame

Hat tip Sandman (whose family showed us around the Negev desert for a second Pesach in a row), and Tanya (who is always showing me new things... if only I would pay attention)

He's the second Israeli who landed serious fame through advertising -- outside of Israel, of course, and after the wonderful Yael Naim.

Fantastic! I'm inspired.

My daughter in animation school in KC, sent me this video. It is a wonderful, lovely piece of cinematic art.

Isn't that beautiful? I linked it a few weeks ago too, but I didn't know anything about the artist. I love the one second where she lies still and you can see her breathe.

Saw this at Sandman earlier in the week and couldn't stop watching. It really is very creative and clever.

What a fun gift to find. Thank you :)

Neato... and I had just found two days ago, on Are We Lumberjacks?, a similar Asian video using photographs. I used to do pixillation (animating objects) with an 8mm camera in high school, and remember the effort involved in shooting even 1 second of film -- but also how cool it was to see the results.

These films remind me of that. I am still a fan of the genre.

Here's the other video. Not as transcendental, obviously, and there is also the matter of one of the central characters being... a pig. :o/
