THE WHISKEY HOLLOW | HUDSON HILL
A lonesome runaway attempts to elude their fate in a storybook world that is out to bring them to an unnecessary justice. 1,599 hand cut stop-motion frames, painted miniatures, and paper figures converge to bring the official video for The Whiskey Hollow's debut single from the album, X WATERS, to life.
In our discussions during the development of this video, vocalist Madeline Finn spoke to me of the personal nature of her lyrics, the mining of one’s own experience to create something worth connecting to. As such, I created a piece made almost entirely of miniatures, creating for the viewer an environment in which their is no choice but to get close to what is being displayed, examining the details to understand the broader picture.
