This Is Not A Test.
I made this video in 2008 for Oppenheimer, a band based out of Northern Ireland. They’re extraordinarily sweet guys and I’m glad to have met them.
This video features my great-grandmother, Beatrice, who I remember quite well. She passed away at 87 years old in 1986. I thought she was pretty when she was young. So did she, apparently…there’s like 10 billion pictures of her floating around…The other man is from a 1920s photograph I picked up at a flea market. I used some imagery of random pieces of ephemera I had lying around and did simple animations with Photoshop.
