Toys for Music Video

I’ve been given the exciting honor of creating a music video for the amazing Portland band, Mnemonic Sounds. It’s going to be a ballet of puppets and toys, which I think will go perfectly with the band’s enchanting electronic pop sound. We’re going to shoot the video next week, and I can’t wait! Until then, here’s a look at some of the toys I’ve made for the production. You can also check out Mnemonic Sounds’ music at their site, or here on iTunes if you’d like.

    Yeah, the twins really loved the short test video I made with the music and a couple of toys. They watched it 5 times in a row and kept wanting to see more. It's great when a band can appeal to such a large audience.

    J'aime beaucoup vos travaux. Il y a une structure à Bruxelles qui travaille dans le même esprit: Art Basic for Children.
