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


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.

pretty awesome

Well after I left I negative review on your supervillain toon, I decided to look at your other work, as I had said your work always left me feeling disappointed in the lack of substance, I gotta say, I was wrong, as I've watched many of your animations and found they are all well written, and this video is no different. I still believe my supervillain review was right, as I do not feel like there is any emotional connection of any kind to the supervillain, but I don't think you should do something just for popularity's sake. The supervillain toons should be whatever you want them to be, and no negative review by me or anyone else should change that. I do think, however, there is a great story you could pull out of the supervillain series, but that is not something I can decide. There will be people who always think you should've done it some different way, so in the end the only thing that really matters is the way you think you should do it. Anyways, I've gotten a bit winded and Im on a mobile so I don't want to go back and edit this, so take it as you will. I enjoyed this video a lot, as always great music, great artwork, thanks for sharing!
