SteriogramMusic Video – 2004

from the album Schmack! (2004)

This ridiculously inventive music video took Steriogram to the world. It uses wool to create people and guitars: a larger than life character scales Hollywood’s Capitol tower to attack the band...some unravelling occurs. The ingenious stop-motion romp was directed in New York by French-born music video legend Michel Gondry (Radiohead, The White Stripes, movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The video  and the song’s use in an iPod advert  brought Steriogram global exposure. Nominated for a Grammy and four MTV Awards, it took three weeks to shoot. The song featured in video games and 2005 movie Robots

Almost everything was done in camera; there was no CG. I used a Bolex camera, which is the next step up from a Super 8.
