Watch a Stop Motion Embroidered Music Video by Metal Band Throne
Embroidered music videos are not new, however, this stop-motion sci-fi music video by heavy metal band Throne is the first one created frame-by-frame. Taking 45 million stitches to create, director and lead singer Nicos Livesey took his inspiration from band patches. Wanting to combine both his singing and sewing passions, he set out to create an animated video that was entirely stitched, a process that, according to Livesey, was torturous. ”I completely ruined any kind of social life,” Livesey told Dazed Digital. “I haven’t spoken to anyone in the past few months. This is the most ridiculously stupid idea.” If by “stupid” you mean awesome.
