Karoshi Bros promo Love/F**k the World

The Burt Bros formerly known as Letrix have been developing Karoshi Bros as a side project and asked us to animate a promo for the first track to be released next month. Karoshi ironically in Japanese means work to death!

The track itself is basically a rant at everything thats wrong with the world from the state of music, America's involvement in the war to, well you get the picture, it's a rant. Sung by a manipulated voice to sound like a young girl. Our interpretation of the track was to look at the impact of putting an opinion out there and showing a visual representation of that. Oh yeah and we managed to put some skulls in there again!

David Hails foolishly came back for more, this time bringing on board his partner Sarah Jayne Claydon/SJ/Clayders to supply us with a never ending supply of crazy characters to animate.

The photos in this post show the incredibly high-tech setup i built for some dolly shots. All those years of watching MaGyver finally paid off. I'm particularly proud of the elastic bands holding the camera onto the train. I used the increments of the train track to measure out the moves. It kinda works and is something i think we'll implement more on a future project.
