Welder – music video

Music video ‘Welder’ for experimental rock band ‘My Octopus Mind’

A manic metal inventor who lives on a small desolate planet is welding together his new creation. Whilst taking off into space to conquer new heights, mother Earth isn’t happy with the path of destruction he leaves behind…

‘Welder’ is a stop motion animated music video with live action practical effects for the Bristol-based experimental rock band ‘My Octopus Mind’. I was responsible for the production from start to finish, from story and puppet making to animation and final special effects.

Here is another little making of making the main character for my new stop motion music video project for the song 'Welder' by @myoctopusmind I had a lot of fun making his face come together from found bits of metal. The ball and socket armature is pieced together from some unwanted old armature parts very kindly donated to our #hangarpuppetanimationstudio by #aardmananimations Link to the music video teaser is in my bio! Full video will be released 2nd of May. #welder #musicvideo #myoctopusmind #stopmotion #fabrication #silversoldering #metal #metalworks #miniature #foundobjects #reuse #recycle #ballandsocket #armature #stopmotionpuppet #puppet #aardman #modelmaker #puppetmaker #makingof #behindthescenes #bts
