Youngblood - Stop Motion Lyric Video

A cut-paper stop motion lyric video for the single "Broken English" by Youngblood. 

March 2017



Youngblood is a Vancouver indie-pop group that is self-described as "what the ’60s thought the future would sound like". Working with the band, Mark Illing and I art directed, assembled and edited a full-length cut-paper stop motion lyric video. The video used thousands of individually cut letters and analog glitching effects, and premiered on Vice's Noisey in late March.

Since we’re all here just floating along really, what’s the point of taking anything too seriously? In a time where we increasingly edit everything and expect perfection, we hope this video serves as a reminder to slow down and appreciate the wonky and weird that life has to offer. 

Special thanks to David Tomiak for help with colouring.
