Hand-drawn animation in music video

Craft & Design Music Photography & Video

Here’s a neat, mostly animated video we were sent to check out, and we like what we see. Roughly 3,000 frames were drawn by hand. It was directed, animated, and produced by Arjen Noordeman of Elasticbrand. You should check it out, too!

    I must be getting old. This struck me last night as I realised that the actors playing The Doctor (as in Doctor Who) are now younger than I am! As you get older you also start rambling….

    Anyway, doesn’t anyone remember this video by a-ha way back in 1985?


    I realise it was probably traced rather than drawn but still it was quite remarkable back at the time.
