Yuval and Merav Nathan who worked with the bands in the past on their videos, and received a worldwide recognition thanks to their Grammy award video of Oren Lavi‘s song – Her Morning Elegance.
The band, led by mastermind songwriter and animator Guy Ben Shetrit, had joined forces with the Nathans again, to work on a new stop motion video for for the song Lose This Child, off their new album Teasing Nature, released a month ago with their long time label – Anova Music.
The new video, is a stunning piece of art, a real unusual work for an indie band, who manages to set a new standard of how videos should look like.
Eatliz – Lose This Child
The Nathans and the crew went every night to the beach in Israel and sculptured in the sand, for six months. Think about the amount of work they had to do and how much clean up their houses had to undergo.
Anyway, the result is remarkable. Truly one of the most stunning videos I’ve seen. Eat your heart out OK Go.
Meanwhile, the clip received brilliant reviews in sites like Popmatters (who also got the premier screening of the video), The MTV Buzzworthy Blog and the Midnighteast blog.
The video won the Best Animation Music Video in the Spanish Musiclip festival and was accepted to 8 international festivals including Canadian Music week Film festival, AniFest Czech Republic, Animfast Greece, Cartoons Italy, ‘Stork Your Fires’ UK, AnirmAu short Film Festival Spain and ‘Be There Corfu’ Greece.
