This is one of the most beautiful animated films I’ve seen all year - and a damn fine song. The fluidity of the oil paint and connection with the music just wash over you. Young Galaxy's "Blown Minded."

Montreal artist and filmmaker Carine Khalife used an incredible stop motion animation technique to give the video it’s stunning visual look. As Carine explains, she painted each image onto a piece of glass fixed to a lightbox and captured the oil paintings frame by frame into a computer, all while carefully matching the motion to the rhythm of the song. The exhaustive-sounding process apparently took 4 months to complete and it results in one of the most amazing animated videos I’ve seen in a long time.
