Analog Remix: A Music Video Is Printed, Painted, and (Re)Animated

A stop-motion video for Rone's 'Parade' explores the boundaries between digital and physical. 

The mysterious floating woman from Gravity returns in a second video for Rone, this time with a twist. Each frame of the stop-motion animation has been modified by an adorable, messy child (don't miss his evil laugh about 1:15 into the clip). Directed by Filip Piskorzynski and featuring Natalia Dufraisse in midair, the video comes alive through the kid's colorful crayon scribbles. "In general I try to always take the best pictures I can and then later destroy them a little," Piskorzynski says. "Too often films are so clean and proper. I like the dirty living true thing." He describes  how the project came together in an interview with the Creators Project

Don't miss the prequel, Gravity, which was featured on the Atlantic Video channel a year ago:
