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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


The animation was amazing, along with the music. All the way through I felt sorry for that little guy, and couldn't wait to see how it turned out. Nice job, keep up the awesome work.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


GREAT artwork. loved the way you moves from the 8-bit view to teh more detailed view of the game world.

While there are questions about the message presented and the song choice, the focus needs to be more directed at the art and story.

Sure, we might not understand it, but we can still enjoy it's awsomeness.
