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.

You sir have a very disticnt style, I recognized it as a barfquestion film at a glance. hand drawn animation is hard to find these days(well done hand drawn animation that is) the tune is great and fetusaur is just so damn huggable. hope to see more fetus...saur in the future. maybe a puddlenaut game?

no words can say

the little guy looks like what a lot of us can see inside us at the start, but as we move forward in life the people we look up to are not what they seem and we see the truth
