This isn’t exactly breaking news but I was just reminded of this as I was watching one of the new iPod commercials. A while back the genious French director Michel Gondry made a video for the song Walkie Talkie Man by the band Steriogram where just about everything in the video is knitted!
It’s such an amazing video and the song will stick in your head for days.
Here’s the video: http://steriogram.com/video.htm.
And here’s a piece about the making of the video is here: http://steriogram.com/. They show knitters literally knitting up the items in the video while it’s in production.
If you want to see more my Michel Gondry, I highly recommend this DVD which is a collection of music videos he’s done: The Work of Director Michel Gondry. It was released before this Steriogram video was made so that’s not on the DVD. But there are so many stunning videos that involve the ingenious trickery of Michel Gondry. For example the White Stripes video for Fell in Love with a Girl which is done with legos and stop animation.
He was also the director of the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
