Simeon Tennant - Solvent: Loss For Words

In Simeon Tennant's video for Solvent's single "Loss for Words" (from Subject to Shift, 2010), a pair of romantically entwined shapes watch helplessly as their relationship dissolves. Both the gray square and his fluffy, pink girlfriend seem at a "Loss for Words" as they drift into their respective solitudes. Tennant's lo-fi computer animation fits perfectly with Solvent's analog-synth pop melancholy, striking a touching balance between technology and emotion.

Ben Reed - Mumdance: Don't Forget Me Now feat. Esser

Directed by:Ben Reed


After spending the last two years creating high profile remixes for the likes of Santigold, Gucci Mane, Radioclit and more, Mumdance (aka Jack Adams) is switching his focus to all original productions with the release of his debut EP, Mum Decent.

Mumdance's ability to interwork eclectic vocals by UK crooner Esser and grime MC Badness on top of production that spans continental influence is what ultimately has allowed his work to stand out amongst his peers. The three tracks that make up the Mum Decent EP follow this summer's outstanding Different Circles mixtape and lay the groundwork for even more original production on forthcoming releases with Bonde Do Role, Toy Selectah, Brodinski and Drums of Death. In the perfect marriage of worldly inspiration and hip influence, Mumdance will be on heavy rotation this fall.

Steffen Bygebjerg - Troels Abrahamsen: End Scene

This video was made by Steffen Bygebjerg in 2009 for the song "End Scene". The track is taken from Troels Abrahamsen's album WHT also from 2009.

The animation work was made in Adobe After Effects. Each frame was then printed and the print was subsequently scanned back into the computer. The scanned frames were then assembled back into the original animation, now with a new rugged look, created by the visit in the physical analogue world. No effects added after scanning.

Chopsy - Architeq: Into the Cosmos

INTO THE COSMOS - Architeq/Chopsy from Chopsy on Vimeo.

“INTO THE COSMOS” is ChopsyAnimations ( first foray into the world of music videos, a tie-in with music maker Architeq from Tirk Records.

Originally it was conceived as a short film by Chopsy (director Darren Robbie), with a simple premise: “what happens to all the old vinyl people used to play? From out of attics, rubbish bins & forgotten shelving, the records are summoned to an old warehouse by a mysterious ‘collector’.”

Using a combination of stop-frame, pixilation, live-action & time lapse animation, it was shot in a variety of locations around Bristol & was created by shooting entirely in camera whenever possible (at other times multiple passes were combined). By shooting each frame within a specific timescale for the external shots, we see vinyl records interacting with the ever changing natural light & weather (dry or wet, sunny or cloudy) – if you look closely you can even see puddles drying out in a couple of shots.

The short film was created on & off over a period of 7 months by a bunch of friends between paid work, a real labour of love (it had no budget to speak of). It was shot in late winter earlier this year with the spring & summer being used to do all the post (mainly rig removal). All the records you see were cut before shooting, with new centre labels stuck onto them to create the desired visual effect of them spinning & bouncing through the ground, they were then animated on location using weighted rigs.

Architeq added the music & sound effects after filming finished & the first edit was completed. Rigs were removed, different passes combined & shadows cleaned up in AfterEffects. Motion capture on location was achieved by using Dragon software on a laptop, which was in turn powered by a portable caravan battery. Cameras used were the Canon Eos 5 & 7.
