While Atlanta metal group Mastodon
prep for their forthcoming album Once More 'Round the Sun
— due out June 24th on Reprise Records — their fanatical followers continue to soak in their 2011 release The Hunter
. One fan in particular, Thomas Yagodinski
, has been working away at his remarkable stop-motion animation video for The Hunter
track "Bedazzled Fingernails", which he built entirely on his own from the ground up. Stop-motion animation requires 24 still photos per second, so that means Yagodinski collected nearly 8,000 photographs for this single video.
Mastodon fans who are currently geeking out over the recent reveal of the Once More 'Round the Sun album art
will definitely want to check out Yagodinski's video below...and Mastodon might want to get him on the phone for a future vid.
Watch a behind-the-scenes video where Thomas Yagodinski shows us how the entire video was made. This dude is incredibly talented, and his jokes aren't bad either...
Once More 'Round the Sun
will be released on June 24th through Reprise Records.
