'Swings and Roundabouts' by The Dead Man's Waltz

A music video for a friend of a friend's band. I got the acetates out again...

It took about two weeks to make, as I had a pretty tight deadline to work to. The backgrounds are mostly photographs (no time to draw everything!) and the characters, if you can call them that, are all hand drawn, scanned, and fixed in photoshop then printed onto acetates and used as puppets over a light box. The footage was then edited loosley in Final Cut Pro to the music, exported for compositing with the photo backgrounds in After Effects and then taken back into FCP for tighter editing.

You can download the track and video for free from The Dead Man's Waltz website.
