Bottle

watch
A stop-motion masterpiece from Kirsten Lepore.

How we managed to miss this one, which was posted to Vimeo six months ago, we have no idea. Created by LA animator Kirsten Lepore, who is clearly a genius, "Bottle" is a stop-motion short exploring the transoceanic conversation between two characters via objects in a bottle. Never mind the technical brilliance, the story triggers every emotion ever invented. Thanks to Booooooom for the......read more

Sufjan Stevens, "All For Myself"

watch
Stop motion video directed by Matt and Julie Walker.

For us, Sufjan Stevens' sensitive indie-pop conjures images of dudes in tight brown cords and chunky black glasses sipping kombucha and burning incense. Thankfully, Matt and Julie Walker (aka Tiger in a Jar)'s visual interpretation of his music is far more creative. The duo's stop-motion video for "All For Myself," off Sufjan's latest LP Adz of the World, involves a Tyrannosaurus lumberjack who......read more

Rime of the paper mariner.

Another day, another sweet Eric Power animation. This time we have the official video for Toh Kay's interpretation of the Dan Potthast song, "I've Set Sail." The tune comes from their split album, You By Me: Volume 1, featuring the two singer/songwriters covering five of each other's songs. The album is the first in a series that allows for two artists to reinterpret each others......read more

Blitzen Trapper, "Furr"

watch
Sepia-toned flip book animation by Jade Harris.

This video is over two years old, but we can justify posting it now because SHFT didn't exist then and because it's crazy good. It's the video for the earthy title track off the Blitzen Trapper's 2008 album, Furr. Director and fellow Portlander Jade Harris does the song proud with this analog stop motion animation. “The video consists of a little over 3000 photos and took about two months......read more

I Break Horses, "Hearts"

watch
Stunner of a video by Alex Southam

Alex Southam of OOF Video directed this gorgeous video for the title track off I Break Horses' upcoming debut album on Bella Union. Southam's combination of nature, Super 8, time-lapse, and band footage provides a perfect visual backdrop to the Swedish duo's dense, shoegazey pop sound. Great spring fare. ...read more

Christopher Smith, "Gently Gently"

watch
Splendid snow globe animation by Vancouver's Salazar collective

With much of the country caught in the midst of a summer heat wave, it's a good time to post this snowy, year-old video for "Gently Gently," a winsome track from Vancouver singer-songwriter Christopher Smith. The snow globe-esque animation was made by Salazar, a film collective with a bunch of stunning videos under its belt. Check out these making-of pics too. Cool. ...read more

G. Love & Special Sauce, "Stone Me" (Unofficial)

watch
Stop motion animation by London's Florence Jones

Florence Jones wasn't satisfied that one of her favorite tunes was video-less, so she did what a creative and enterprising internet user should do -- she made her own and uploaded it to the web. Laid-back Philly blues-hop trio G. Love & Special Sauce are the benefactors of her creativity, which outfits the jam with a lovingly made stop-motion treatment that nicely fits the......read more

Amazing amalgamation of sculpture and stop-motion animation

Video clips don't come any more captivating than this. With a commission from Melbourne's Federation Square, the environmental designers at Eness studio built a series of triangular sculptures then shot them in various configurations around the city. The result is this next-level interpretation of public art. The hypnotic stop motion animation was shot over a period of two weeks, with each shot......read more

Great Lake Swimmers, "River's Edge"

watch
Wavy wooden animation by Nir Ben Jacob

This clip for "River's Edge," a highlight off Great Lake Swimmers' '09 LP Lost Channels, is an oldie but a goodie. Director and animator Nir Ben Jacob (well known for his excellent video for "On The Water" by The Walkmen) flexed his impressive stop-motion skills with a flowing, woody animation that matches the earthy eloquence of the tune. "About half a year ago, I stumbled on these wood-chip......read more
