In the stop-motion tune video for the Kodacrome music “Oh You Two”, a big-eyed, home made marionette named Marv is going about his quiet existence, which incorporates riding house, doing his chores, operating together with his equipment in the shed and reflecting nostalgically on his previous thru previous movies and data. Band contributors Elissa LeCoque and Ryan Casey constructed the complete set by way of hand at a 1/8 scale. Every element was once attended to, particularly all of Marv’s equipment.
It began out as a easy idea. A unmarried marionette and his trusty equipment to big name in our subsequent tune video. But once he had a couple of paintbrushes, he wanted a collection of variable wrenches, in fact. And what affordable handyman wouldn’t even have an electrically-wired bench grinder? And if you happen to give a person a bench grinder, he’s going to additionally desire a pair of protection goggles. And so went the slippery slope that led us right into a 6-month construct of this tiny international. By the finish, we knew the marionette (Marv, we known as him) in detail.
LeCoque and Casey speak about developing Marv’s international in a superb behind-the-scenes video.
What started as a easy idea, snowballed into an all-consuming mission, consisting of nine units, electrically-wired lighting fixtures and motors, and a borderline-obsessive stockpile of dollhouse-sized set items.
