I Like A.F. Schepperd’s Music Videos

The new video for Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi (Featuring Jack White!)’s song “Two Against One” is pretty strange and engrossing. It features the animation of Anthony Francisco Schepperd. Despite the title, I don’t think this is a response to everyone’s favorite song.

That was also co-directed by Chris Milk! This isn’t the first great video he’s done for a Danger Mouse project.

You may also have seen A.F. Schepperd’s insane, fever-dream animation on the web before. He made this music video for Blockhead’s “The Music Scene”.

Sleep tight!

Roboman’s Riff (With Turtles)

Roboman is Damien Clarke, an old friend from Albinoblacksheep. He made Missile Game 3D, which has eaten many minutes of my life.

He also made this riff, which I tried to play above. The turtles helped.

Update: Someone asked for guitar tablature. Here’s how I play it: http://www.spinnerdisc.com/robomans_riff_tab.txt

I Love Ned Wenlock’s Music Videos

I love music videos. I especially love animated music videos. This new MGMT video is by Ned Wenlock and it’s gorgeous:

The best part about this is it gives me an excuse to also post another of Ned’s videos, which is one of my favorites: Apache by Danger Beach. I could watch this all day:

Don’t miss this making of interview, either.

Animatic for Tally Hall – Turn The Lights Off

axa personal loans

I thought it might be fun to publish the animatic I made before creating Tally Hall’s video for “Turn The Lights Off”. This was helpful for planning and for making sure the band was happy with the concept. Plus now you can see all the corners I ended up cutting!

Tally Hall – Turn The Lights Off

I’ve wanted to make an animated video for this song for a long time, and I got the opportunity to make it mine back in August. I finally finished it about a week ago, just in time for Halloween.

If you haven’t heard Tally Hall yet, check them out.

Thanks to Sean Donnelly, from Awesome & Modest, who helped with the final file conversion, added some glow and depth to the video, and taught me some things about After Effects in the process. Sean did Tally Hall’s Ruler Of Everything video.
