Canadian animation director Joel Mackenzie - who has made films for TV clients including BBC, HBO and Cartoon Network - has created this marvellous music video for Rich Aucoin's Yelling In Sleep - aka Lumberjacked - where one man stands between a nice world full of trees and animals and maple syrup on tap (well, this is a Canadian cartoon), and digital annihilation. 

Our hero is a reformed lumberjack, happily communing with that groovy chick called Mother Nature, until an 8-Bit mutant wasp starts to create havoc in his woody idyll. Then it's time to break out his long-retired axe...  

Joel's video has already become an animation festival favourite, premiered at this year's Toronto Animation Arts Festival International and winning best music video at Animation Block Party 2014.
