Charlie Tyrell has directed this video for Keita Juma's track Belly, with an animated photo collage technique inspired by David Hockney.

To pull it off, he converted video from around 13 DSLR cameras to still image sequences and printed out each individual frame, resulting in five thousand printed photos which were then animated by hand. A mammoth job, but the result is an interesting, shapeshifting take on a performance video.
