Wave Machines' The Greatest Escape We Ever Made by Stuart Lanceley

David Knight - 18th May 2009

Liverpool-based filmmaker Stuart Lanceley - the guy who made that lovely spoof-cum-tribute to Radiohead's No Surprises for Adam & Joe's Video Wars - has now turned to the fairly gargantuan task of animating photographic cut-outs of Liverpool outfit Wave Machines.

It's very commendably done - and still possibly more fun than putting your head in a pot of meatballs. <strong><em>Stuart Lanceley on making the video for Wave Machines' The Greatest Escape We Ever Made</em></strong> "For this video, I rediscovered the joy and agony of stop-motion animation. It's the reason I first got into filmmaking. "I created a paper edit first, then shot the band with a Sony Z1 camcorder. I edited this footage together in Final Cut Pro and then exported every frame as a tiff. These stills were printed and cut out. It was then re-shot with a digital camera before all the stills were brought back into FCP once again. Et voila! "Many thanks to the wonderful people who helped me with the epic amount of animation necessary, I couldn't have kept going without you! Thanks also to the band for doing so much printing and cutting out, well done to you all!"

It's very commendably done - and still possibly more fun than putting your head in a pot of meatballs.
