Posted at 2:10pm, 1/27/2012
"Moodslayer", is the fantastic new animated video from The Luyas. "Moodslayer" is off of their most recent release, Too Beautiful To Work. The director, Derrick Belcham had this to say about his creation:
"Moodslayer" is created completely out of hand-made paper animation machines, crystals and analog light and shadow. Most every object in the video is spinning on a record player. The song, "Moodslayer" was written by compiling the anxieties and venerations of a close friend as they dealt with their first schizophrenic hallucinations.
Shot on a modified digital camcorder, the visuals were created by fashioning unique apertures from cardboard and other coarse papers, modifying a variety of light sources with an assortment of glass geometry and directing the changes through a live video monitor.
The depiction centres on the dichotomy between the protagonist's perception of the real and unreal within his own mind. They are thrown into a spectacular display of thought forms, settling on archetypes of peace in their youth, but, eventually, they are serenaded back into the unreal where a kind of comfort and control can be maintained."Check out the video below and don't forget to download a couple tracks, to the right.
