Via comments, here’s a wonderful video by Brazil’s Conrado Almada (both directing and hand-illustrating the work) for the band Skank. (And, indeed, Skank are in fact better known than the likes of OK Go – at least if you’re in Brazil.) It’s in keeping with this week’s (unintentional) stop-action theme, and a reminder of the power of the human hands on media alongside the capabilities of the digital realm. I still imagine that there’s far more to be explored at the nexus of the two.
Someone with the language chops (or the native language), feel free to step in and give us some background. I’m too busy, anyway, with my jaw on the floor. Wonderful, charming, inventive work.
Thanks to Tatu Guetta for the tip!
