Featuring an animated battle between a five-legged octopus and a robot, the latest video clip from Dubmarine takes stop motion animation to a whole new level.
Filmed for the Dubber’s second single, ‘Point The Bone’ — from debut LP 'Depth Of Sound' — the video took more than 200 hours to shoot.
The clip depicts a modern day clash of the titans between octopus and robot, set in a hand-sculpted city-scape. Animator Debbie Steer was assisted by a team of filmmaker friends who’ve worked on such films as ‘Happy Feet 2’, ‘Transformers’ and ‘Sucker Punch’ to create the 'home-made' five-minute clip.
The video is a nod to Ray Harryhausen, a pioneer in stop motion animation whose six tentacled octopus (six instead of eight to save money!) starred in the 1955 flick ‘It Came From Beneath The Sea’.
Dubmarine are currently in the studio recording new material.
