Work / Music Video

The most ambitious stop motion music video ever made? Probably

One man who evidently has patience in truckloads is Joseph Brett, the filmmaker and animator based in London who is responsible for creating this music video for Ezra Furman’s new song Restless Years, which might be the single most ambitious stop motion music video I’ve ever seen. In it, Ezra explores the San Francisco Bay Area in thousands of still frames. He walks down streets, through tunnels and around a vintage clothes shop donning more and more women’s clothes at every step, not to mention pausing at intervals to dance with friends or to wander curiously around a library. It must have taken weeks to make, let alone to edit together, and the sheer amount of effort which has gone into it makes it completely irresistible. Joe, we salute you.
