Psychedelic clipart animation inspired by the Currents album artwork forms the basis on the new Tame Impala video which is basically the 2015 version of Dire Straits’ ‘Money For Nothing’ .
It was made by Weirdcore:
‘Visually for me, the video is like a kind of homage to Hipgnosis artwork, as I feel Tame Impala’s music is suited to that look and feel. Tame Impala’s new artwork was a great inspiration for the vibe of it. I happily threw in as many artwork cameos as I could from that. Technically the constant moving camera was an ideal way to show near non-moving scenarios, long takes and minimal editing is something I’m always into doing. This is the first 3D video I’ve made where none of the 3D was modelled for it. All assets were either bought/found/acquired/customised from various sources, so it’s a bit like a 3D collage.” Weirdcore
Currents is out on July 17th wordwide.
