of Montreal ‘Last Rites At The Jane Hotel’

A beautifully crafted music video that takes us on a weird and wonderful journey.

Animation / Mixed Media

A hotel door is a portal into a technicolour nightmare in this music video for the Athens, Georgia band ‘of Montreal’. The video was entirely animated in stop-motion using thousands of free standing, hand painted, wooden cut out pieces.

“The tone of the song’s lyrics are quite dark… but the music has this technicolor and upbeat kind of tone to it so I think that’s what I tried to do with the video.”
