The music video for Waves Machines new song, “The Greatest Escape We Ever Made” rediscovers the “joys and agonies of stop motion” as quoted by director Stuart Lanceley. The song made me bounce a bit in my chair while I sipped on vitamin water and recovered from last night.

For this video, I rediscovered the joy and agony of stop-motion animation. It’s the reason I first got into film-making. I created a paper edit first, then shot the band with a Sony Z1 camcorder. I edited this footage together in Final Cut Pro and then exported every frame as a TIFF. These stills were printed and cut out. It was then re-shot with a digital camera before all the stills were brought back into FCP once again. Et Voila! Hope you enjoy it.
If you want to know more about the band, they have a free download and links to myspace, facebook etc. at wavemachines.co.uk – Stuart
