I’ve been ill again this week and completely losing the plot at work as we get closer to the fateful project go-live! This in combination with juggling family matters and photography work has left me little time to write much down here on the blog (excuses excuses). So to try and make up for it and in substitute of imparting my carefully thought out musings I shall leave you with another cool vimeo flick that caught my eye this week. I love searching the web for inspiration and this one really struck me for a number of reasons. It’s not necessarily my kind of music (although it’s a grower) but the video certainly rocks. I love the use of dark and light and then vibrant colour – especially alongside the animated vintage style drawings and the surreal action elements. Hopefully you get a kick out of it also…
“I Say Fever” – the first video from the Ramona Falls debut album Intuit. Directed by the ridiculously talented Stefan Nadelman, winner of a 2003 Sundance prize for his 22 minute film ‘Terminal Bar’, a prolific animator in the commericial field and the mastermind behind the Menomena Evil Bee video.
Ramona Falls is Brent Knopf’s first solo venture, but he has an extensive musical resume as part of trio Menomena (an indie rock band from Portland, OR, that’s snagged plaudits from such tastemakers as Pitchfork Media and the New York Times.)
Directed and Animated by Stefan Nadelman
Produced by Tourist Pictures
