If you know anything about movies like Chicken Run, Fantastic Mr. Fox, or Tim Burton’s Coraline or Corpse Bride is that they are made from clay and took forever to make. Claymation is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated forms of movie making out there and St. Joseph, Missouri’s garage-punk siblings Radkey have used it for their new music video for “Glore.”
According The Guardian the just over two-minute long video took more than 10 weeks to make. The psychedelic video was directed by Nicos Livesey (who is known for his work in claymation) and had five stop-motion animators working on 435 bars of clay and two bottles of sunscreen. The result is intense and incredible when you think about how much time and effort went into this video.
“Glore” is off of Radkey’s debut album Dark Black Makeup which you can pick up here.
The trio is continuing their European tour tonight. You can find dates here.
