On Friday we were lucky enough to be visited by the fantastic D.A.D.D.Y (Design, Animaton, Design, Design, Yay) all the way from Dublin, and were spellbound. Every piece of their work whether a hard-hitting Red Cross campaign, one of their stunning self-written short films, or in this case a music video – is soaked in good humour and ingenious technique.
This one for Bloc party back in 2009, cleverly splices together film stock from 1940s animator Ray Harryhausen and adds a layer of brand new animations to subvert the original fairy-tale plot. As I said, ingenious technique and beautiful execution – to make even the most confident director a wee bit jelaous.
