Going through the archives of some old work today and found this clip from 2007. This is the music video for Yidcore’s song ‘Happy New Year ATOM’, which was made by Michael Hill & Yeap Heng Shen… and I’m in the kangaroo suit.
This music video was made using the animation technique of pixelation – essentially stop motion frame-by-frame animation using people. Not a quick technique and not one I’d do again quickly on a 35 degree day inside a big padded kangaroo suit!
In one of the shots you can kind of see a polling booth in the background. We filmed this the weekend of the Federal election and voted in animal suits!
