The Noughts and Crosses Band – God Bless The BBC (2009), 2 min
Best viewed in HD, fullscreen
An animated HD music video for The Noughts & Crosses Band, frantically throwing together TV, dinner parties and the over-consumption of a certain Irish liqueur. As fun as it sounds.
This video was animated using a technique called rotoscoping, which involves drawing over every frame of a live-action recording. Bold digital lines, highly simplified figures and uncannily altered anatomy all make for a unique and exciting visual style. There’s some nicely 3D bits as well!
