The Octopus Project where Music and 3D Converge
The "Whitby" official music video is a product of the The Octopus Project's collective consciousness. Created, shot and directed by the band, the stop-motion extravaganza was crafted entirely using die-cut colored card stock. Band members meticulously designed each shape in Photoshop then used a cutting machine generally reserved for scrapbooking to cut them out before photographing them in real world settings. The final video consists of over 4,000 separate images; watch it here under.
Octopus Project is a super-creative indie pop, indie rock and experimental band from Austin Texas. "Fever Forms" is their fifth album. The band long ago got into the stereoscopic visuals thing, so their album trailer follows up on that.
