Tom Werber's previous video was the superb Victorian monster cartoon for Loser's Flush, so his latest one, for English/Brazilian folk singer-songwriter Mariana Magnavita comes as a bit of a surprise: a delicate live action stop motion spectacle involving lots and lots of string.

The string represents more invisible bonds and ties, and this must have been quite a headache to put together. But its beautifully achieved.
