A video with Rthrtha

Check out the new video for The Octopus Project's "An Evening with Rthrtha," it is the second collaboration between long-time friends Phillip Niemeyer of the Brooklyn design studio Double Triple and San Francisco-based filmmaker Ryan Junell. You may recall seeing their hand-animated stop-motion video for Spoon's "You Got Yr Cherry Bomb" earlier this year.

For "Rthrtha," Niemeyer & Junell used a similar stop-motion animation approach to depict a magical night with the extra-dimensional spirit agents of Rthrtha. Brilliant colors and graphic images move in breakneck stop-motion, illustrating a mind-blowing evening with an ancient psychedelic pink bat, who takes the viewer on a transcendent journey from the hazy Austin twilight into a sub-atomic singularity with the comsos.
