gained the world

Morcheeba graciously asked me back to direct their second single off the Dive Deep album. Luckily I had the grand talents of Eric Kilkenny, Saxton Moore and Darin Bendalllending their animation wizardry as well as a generous tech hand from Sir Todd Schott. Of course Dan Kreeger and posse over at One Small Step were, as always, the finest a production company can be.

Endless thanks to Morcheeba and the label making both videos sincerely good times. Hey lemme know what you think, will ya?

In other news, just started up a new music video and tied up the end for the Animation Show. Did I ever tell you that Eric Kilkenny and Gene Blakefield were a big part of the Animation Show’s opener piece? I’m truly an ass. These guys animate circles around me.

    It is pretty good, mate! Keep up the good work. I wish I had any kind of artistic talents, but all I can do is ranting about random things on the web, which is both silly and futile.

    Super nice! You make the best videos despite being stuck with some weak music (coming from someone who gladly shelled out cash for Morcheeba’s earlier stuff) You always have memorable images with a fantastic imagination, great art and best of all: a fun, cohesive story!

    Down low! (high fives are so last year)

    Thanks x 3!

    pat rik- It is indeed Flash. There’s a pinch of Photoshop and everything is ran out of Premiere in the end, but 95% is Flash really.

    silvia- Cool! Thanks very very much.

    brian- You’re way too kind. I definitely try hard for narrative since I don’t really have the sexy effects. Glad you like it. I see your “down low” and raise you an “on the side!!!!”
