Listeners of the Sound On Sight podcast might remember us playing some tracks from Canadian experimental artist / MC / turntablist, Buck 65. Underpinned by an extensive background in abstract hip hop, his more recent music has extensively incorporated blues, country, rock, folk and avant garde influences. His latest music video “Superstars Don’t Love” is pretty amazing and so we felt we should spotlight it.
Using Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects, this short video is directed by Toronto-based Freelance designer and animator Travis Hopkins, and is comprised by over 60 fictional movie title cards inspired by the lyrics of the track. That’s right; each title has been replaced with a lyric from the song. How many can you recognize just by looking at its typography.
After you try and guess where each title comes from, I highly recommend heading over to Art Of The Title for a full description of how the music video was created. Enjoy!
