New OK Go Video for “Last Leaf” is Animated on Toast, Quite Pretty
When OK Go releases a new video, it’ll assuredly be something wacky and impressive. Though their video for “This Too Shall Pass” recently set the bar with a ridiculously complicated Rube Goldberg machine, their new video for “Last Leaf” goes the artsy route and matches the soothing melody with a very pretty animated video. On toast.
The video also has a neat origin: Samsung approached OK Go and asked them what their next project would be, OK Go said they wanted to do something animated, so Samsung supplied them with an NX100 camera and Geoff Mcfetridge did the animation itself. Each second of the video is a sequence of fifteen pictures, something that must’ve taken a very long time, and many, many pieces of bread* to complete.
*Tons of bread was harmed in the making of this video.
