Bowerbirds / In Our Talons

A beautiful stop-motion animation by Canadian Alan Poon, for one of my favourite songs of all time, Bowerbirds’ In Our Talons. This is an old video but it only popped up on Vimeo recently.

  • the ending is sooo amazing.

    my friend dean and i went to the bowerbirds show here in vancouver a couple weeks ago and this song was INCREDIBLE live

  • I just love this song. Haven’t seen the video before, it’s awesome.

  • I like this post, as well as the one about Matthew Albanese or Allison Schulnik animation for Grizzly Bear. I’ve never been that much inspired by animation and artificial landscapes before, but… these days… Thank you to feed my inspiration!

    AWESOME! Thanks for posting Jeff! you win the GOLD medal for being sweet!

    As does this video, as do the Bowerbirds!!!!

  • Make sure to check out their behind the scenes videos. So good. I love all of the shoes!

  • Mmm, I love Bowerbirds and this video! And not just because my photos decorate their newest album =)

    Motionographer recently re-featured this video and I was happy to see it again, I’m glad it’s getting more coverage in the blog world.

    this is inspiring. i had wanted to make a stop-motion animated video but then i realized that i had none of the technology i needed…

    • you really just need a camera!

      • ynez

        i tried with just a camera at first, but you also need a tripod, because it’s impossible to get the shots lined up after you walk over and adjust them

  • duder

    To Make a video like this you also need a fantastic crew.

    some of the people that weren’t mentioned are:

    Adam Makarenko : DP and Set builder
    Mike Hollenbeck: Lead Animator
    Sylvie Trouve : Animator
    Anibal Davila : Animator
    Diana Savage : puppet creator

    this video would not be possible without them, Great work guys!!!

    cheers
