Sean Pecknold's latest creative tour de force for his brother Robin's band Fleet Foxes is a fully animated video for Featherweight that tells the story of a bird on a final extraordinary adventure.

The video has been created in a style that echoes Pecknold's video for the band's The Shrine/An Argument - one of the real masterpieces among his many wonderful videos for Fleet Foxes. From the art and design by Sean Lewis, Pecknold has created flat-artwork puppets that are stop-frame animated through gorgeous hand-painted scenes.
