Modest Mouse Video Animated On 4133 Kinko’s Photocopies

This is pretty creative and very well done. Seems several bands now days are looking for user generated videos. The first I know of was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs video contest for their “Cheated Hearts” song. Just yesterday, a buddy of mine was talking about how he was going to try and do one that Ozzy Osbourne has running for his “I Don’t Wanna Stop” song. Then I ran across a Modest Mouse video done by a fan for their “Missed the Boat” video contest. Here is that video:

Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each “shot” of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!
