They did it frame by frame, believe the proper term is "stop motion". These type of vids take a TON of work. I dunno how they did the "floating" parts (such as the fairing at the end) though as I couldn't see any wires, so maybe some Pchopping was in order.

In case you guys didn't catch the reference, there's a reason they used Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" as the background music.

Quote:
"Sledgehammer" spawned a widely popular and influential music video directed by Stephen R. Johnson. Aardman Animations and the Brothers Quay provided claymation, pixilation, and stop motion animation that gave life to images in the song. The video ended with a large group of extras jerkily rotating around Gabriel, among them: Gabriel's daughters Anna and Melanie, the animators themselves, and director Stephen Johnson's girlfriend. Also included were six women who posed as the back-up singers of the song. Gabriel lay under a sheet of glass for 16 hours while filming the video one frame at a time.[6]

In 1987, it won nine MTV Video Music Awards, a record which still stands as of 2008. It ranked at number four on MTV's 100 Greatest Music Videos Ever Made (1999). MTV later announced that "Sledgehammer" is the most played music video in the history of the station. "Sledgehammer" has also been declared to be MTV's number one animated video of all time.[7]

The video was also voted number seven on TMF's Ultimate 50 Videos You Must See - first aired 24 June 2006. It ranked at number 2 on VH1's "Top 20 Videos of the 80's" as well as being named the #1 "Amazing Moment in Music" on the Australian TV show 20 to 1 in 2007.

The portion of the song featuring the synthesized flute solo was realized in the video by first one and then two oven-ready chickens, headless and featherless, animated using stop-motion. These were animated by Nick Park (of Wallace and Gromit fame) who, at that time was refining his work in plasticine animation.

The video won Best British Video at the 1987 Brit Awards.
Enjoy.

Just seeing the stop motion of the build itself would have been cool but they threw in a ton of other shit I wasn't expecting to really kick it up a notch. Bravo.

Berz out.

Since I work in the industry, knowing how intricate modern motorcycles are these days I would not trust a bike that was put together from the ground up in someone garage.

wow talk about time wasting? It's probably faster to build a complicated model of the bike with CGI and make this clip

plus it'll be way smoother.
