American Football has just released a music video for “Every Wave to Ever Rise”. Just last month, the single was released and we could not get over the soft sounds and lyricism. With its accompanied visual, “Every Wave to Ever Rise” feels complete. The 5-minute, stop-motion video is creative and its details showcase the amount of work put into it. Created by Hydeon, the project has a beautiful aesthetic.
“This music video project was 10/10, one of the most difficult, challenging, and most beautiful creative projects I’ve ever been a part of. I felt like I was on a psychedelic trip for the entire duration, living in a miniature world. I felt like I actually became one of the characters as I animated their tiny limbs and pieces, one photo at a time. We existed in this miniature world for upwards of 18+ hours a day…We would film 60 seconds of stop animation a day to reach our goal. We were solving countless problems around the clock and collaborating on ideas constantly… I completely lost myself in the project, completely surrendered myself to it. Nothing else mattered beyond the film at that moment. We created 5000+ individual unique photos to make this thing. It was truly a magical and spiritual experience for me that I’ll never forget.” –Ian Ferguson (Hydeon) via Juxtapoz
