So Buckethead has someone send me some mp3's of his new album without any comment or album art. I am struck by the "Spokes" track and I *instantly* visualize animated Hieronymus Bosch in my head. I scan a few of his paintings in and make a 15 second test animation. A week or so later I drive to Buckethead's secret headquarters and play him the test. He freaks out and takes me into his recording area, right there on the wall is a huge Hieronymus Bosch poster. Buckethead had been imagining the painting coming to life when he wrote the song. This was one of the most effortless things I have ever done, it felt like it was meant to be.
This video was created almost entirely from Hieronymus Bosch paintings with a few extra paintings from Frankensuess. Compare BH's body to HB's "Prodigal Son" painting to get an idea of how things worked. I co-directed and animated this one with Eric Henry.
