I made this video back in 1991 at CalArts, as an animation student. It's 100% sand, backlit against a lightbox and animated, frame by frame, below an animation video camera. There are some jumps and pauses in the animation because I could only work for a few hours before letting other students use the animation stand, so it was shot over the course of many days. Not the smoothest, but hell, I worked hard on it when I was a lad and I felt that I might as well share it.
The song is "The Black Crow Knows" by Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians, off their album "Element of Light." This is not an official video.
