Fleet Foxes 'The Shrine / An Argument' by Sean Pecknold

Fleet Foxes 'The Shrine / An Argument' by Sean Pecknold

David Knight - 22nd Nov 2011

A stunning, epic video for Fleet Foxes' interlinked songs The Shrine/An Argument - the epic double-track from the Helplessness Blues album - by Sean Pecknold.

A stunning, epic video for Fleet Foxes' interlinked songs The Shrine/An Argument - the epic double-track from the Helplessness Blues album - by Sean Pecknold. Sean directed several excellent videos for tracks from <em>Fleet Foxes</em>, the previous breakthrough album of his brother Robin's band - including Mykonos and the lovely White Winter Hymnal. But this extraordinary work - a full eight minutes long - is his greatest achievement so far. In his painstaking classic stop-frame style, Sean has created a world in which a heroic stag faces a succession of dark forces, natural and supernatural. It's a self-contained, lyrically beautiful, very hostile universe - and bad things happen. Sean works in a style that references stop-frame animation in its classic form. The result - seen on the big screen at BUG 28 last Friday (Nov 18th) - is mesmerizing. One of those rare occasions when the fusion of sound and vision is so complete that it transcends the medium.
