Thanks for Daily 1st and front page!!

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

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.

just too good

my eyes watered a little because of how awesome this video was. The song and animations were just talking to each other because of how will they fit together. That cute little guy just made me so emotional for him.
sorry, i have to watch it again

If you think about it...

This puddlenaut guy is a complete jerk, coming in and trashing some kingdom just to mine his precious crystals. It's only natural that the denizen fetasaurs would try to defend themselves...

Awsome!!!

If you made a game of this you could have the story line of the main guy, then you could unlock the little dude.
