Check out Birdmonster's great new video for "The Iditarod" from their album From the Mountain to the Sea, out September 2 in stores and out NOW digitally from the Fader Label.

"The Iditarod" was made using a technique called SLAM (SLide, Animation, Movies) coined by its developer - Greg Crane. Not too different from your standard stop-motion animation, SLAM takes the aesthetics to a new arty level. 95% of the video was created using digital still photos from a professional/high-end camera. Approximately 1800 shots were painstakingly and meticulously pasted together to establish that "motion".
