@04:47I just found my most favorite video on :devart:
Knights of the Black Sun
First single from the upcoming album Sonic Mass by Amebix
Directed by Fin McAteer
Animation by Andy Lefton
Written by Fin McAteer, Rob Miller and Andy Lefton

This project took a little over four months from start to finish and was a real joy to work on. Andy is Based in the US and I am currently in exile in Ireland. Rob is in Skye in Scotland. Rob and I came up with the concept and were "guided" to bring Andy in because no one else would have been able to do it. It was a true labor of love. Andy managed to work this into his already busy life and just nailed it. Many late night Skype's with me at times playing the part of the bird and everything else with Andy laughing and taking notes at the same time. Fun days. We also managed to squeeze out the artwork for the single and a teaser trailer. Just shows you what can be done with no budget but a team of pro's willing to give every ounce to the project. I hope you enjoy and are gentle with your critics. Remember we did it.
Thanks to Rob for being the bestest best mate ever.
Andy for being the most talented illustrator/animator on the planet. He is a pain in the ass but I love him.
Also thanks to Meg and Rose for their love and support.
Thanks to Roy and Stig and the Baron for making great fucking music. Thanks to Carlton for his unwavering support and also thanks to Faye for her belief. Thanks to Kim as well for her love and company on this journey.

This is absolutely fantastic; all of your hard work paid off! I especially enjoy the atmosphere and weather effects. And sorry that you're in exile, I have no idea what that must be like.
