Wire and Flashing Light Stop Motion Animation, CC Success Story

Not only is the content of Victor Haegelin‘s stop motion animation a natural match with the music, but this project succeeds on so many levels that it can be appreciated as a masterclass for creative and engaging strategies to locate the expressive qualities in physical objects while also finding a visual language for communicating what is delightful and whimsical about Professor Kliq‘s music.

Kliq’s music is released with just this kind of animation in mind, using Creative Commons.

I woke up one morning to this video in my inbox, along with a short note asking “Is it alright if I use this track?” As you could imagine, I was absolutely blown away by the quality, execution, and creativity in this video. I went on to form a friendship with Victor Haegelin, the creator of this fine video. It was originally set to possibly my most popular track “Plastic & Flashing Lights”, but that track was made so long ago, before I had an education in music or even a hundredth of the technology I have access to now, so I gave it a bit of a facelift. Thanks for making such an amazing video, Victor….
