The Agony of the Agnostic is a song by Chris Knox, the famous New Zealand musician. This video, made in 2004, with his approval and participation, was designed and directed by Danijela Vitasovich during her graduation year at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design. To create this animation, Danijela painted 144 individual portraits of a series of poses Chris took to express the mood of each one of the characters singing in the video. While posing, Chris had to follow a complex system of mouth charts designed by Danijela, to allow his characters to articulate the lyrics in synch with the soundtrack.
The song is introduced by an animated feature starring Danijela herself (vitasovich.com)
