This was my first completely animated music video.
Every single frame was taken with my Sony DSC digital camera and then the whole thing was dumped into iMovie and I set the timing.
The puppets are made from foam and felt using dowels to keep the pieces together and pins to attach the felt. Monte is about a foot tall and Cromwell is maybe 8 inches tall.
In the final scenes I photoshopped my wife out of some of the pictures so if you see Cromwell leave a trail when he's flying, now you know why.
Vicious Kanicious is an "artist's model" from Ikea that I painted, his motorcycle is just a printed out image. I put some cardboard behind it to make it sturdy.
The paper parts are just origami paper and scrapbook paper. I just cut all of the pieces (*Kristin cut the leaves for the tree) out and taped them together. The paper Monte and Cromwell are about 2.5 inches tall.
I don't have any animation training so this was all done by trial and error. I started animating it 19 days ago and finished it last night.
I did the cover for the album this song comes from, "Classics Never Die/ Cowardly Cobra" by Da Bears, coming out in October 2008 on Grizzly Records.
