Over 5,000 Stickers Were Stop-Motion Animated For The Shins’ Brilliant “Half a Million” Music Video

Half A Million Music Video The Shins LAMAR NIK

LAMAR+NIK are back with another brilliant music video, and this time it’s for the single “Half a Million” from the band The Shins’ Heartworms album. The director duo first shot the visuals on an all-white backdrop, edited them and printed 5,566 stickers which were then laboriously hand cut. The stickers were then “animated” by layering them on top of each other to create an brilliant visual effect.
