Matt Bean- 001
Flash music video by Laith Bahrani, for the song Creep by Radiohead

I love the way this video unfolds and adds layers of details (some very subtle and amusing) to create something rather complex while still maintaining it's simplistic nature. I think this video is very successful at using lines and shapes within the digital space to give it depth and mood (for example when the two coworkers get built from the bones up). After only a day of introduction to Flash, it is already possible to see how the animator used layers, keyframes, etc to create timing and shifting shapes. I think we can all relate to the meaning behind both the song and the video at different times in our lives. Though this animated world is a little starker and simpler than our own, it can sometimes feel very similar.
