Like the proud parents of a new-born child, we present you with the labor of love that is the video for When I Am King by Dutch indie rocker Tim Knol. The video was painstakingly put together by hotshot superbot Sverre Fredriksen who soldered ten tons (or thereabouts) of timber to create the images, and stop motion to animate them – averaging five hours of work per second shown. The clip was produced by our hot sister, YellowSubmarine, and we took the opp to create a ‘making of’ video, which you can see on 2pause.com (our now defunct homage to the art of music videos) along with this video and many many more.
