Filmmaker's note

Having worked together before, the band trusted me to make whatever I thought fit the song best. The video took six months to animate in between other jobs. About half of the effects are practical, including the camera motion, the liquid explosions, and the titles. Every frame was boarded into an animatic before the shoot, which took place over a weekend on the green screen at Windmill Studios. Four dozen gallons of whole milk and two extra large containers of Vaseline were used.


Director Robin Comisar and Art Director Mimi Bai will be available for a Q&A after the screening.
