~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The official music video for "The Faster the Treadmill" by I Fight Dragons!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Commentary:
I began work on this shortly after completing Grumatorium, and it was a pretty intense project. The band utilizes a lot of game controllers and NES era material into their music and performances so I approached this video from a similar perspective, starting by designing and animating gameplay from a fictional 8-bit game that the video would take place in.

The result was "the Adventures of Puddlenaut," in which a shark-armed diver hero does battle with deep sea creatures in order to mine mystical power crystals that are abundant in the underwater kingdom. The main grunt enemies, one of which is the protagonist of the video, were modeled after drowned fetuses since I couldn't find any deep sea creatures to fit the image I was looking for. Thus I ended up calling the main character "Fetusaur" throughout production.

Check out the song on I Fight Dragons debut EP "Cool is Just a Number!" More information at: http://www.ifightdragons.

Adorable :3

Really, i had to watch it again to get the story, but when I did it just made me sympathize with Fetusaur. Aww it's stuck between all this chaos, thinking maybe it will triumph itself. But it is lighthearted and lovingly refreshing to watch and listen to over and over again. I'll admit...I miss these kind of stories with the-little-person-doing-big-things...
:3 Really nice and impressive animation story.

Aweseome Another Gold Animation

You're submissions are always gold and they remain perfectly original.

I love how you combine macabre elements and playful references into your flashes and manage to make something dark into an adorable and fun animation that I can enjoy over and over again.

and also kudos on exposing me to more underground music and indie bands, showing us that great music and great art isn't always on TV or on the Radio.

100% and keep it up, I look forward to the next submission.
