Video of the Moment #1419: Appomattox

We were remiss not to feature Brooklyn-based band Appomattox‘s latest video before we closed up shop for the holidays. The video is for ‘United’, and you’ve never seen anything like this before; I’ll leave it to the description to explain:

This video was created using a zoetrope machine that spools multiple 14 foot long x 3 inch, paper animation belts at very high speed, to produce the animations. The band members of Appomattox were kind enough to step inside the machine and put their faces 3 inches from the extremely fast moving, and loud, paper belts for this piece. Fortunately, no major facial paper cuts were incurred.

It’s absolutely brilliant. Watch it below.
