A couple weeks ago we reviewed the all-star collaboration of Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, Damian Kulash and Neil Gaiman, who gathered one night in Boston to record 8 songs in 8 hours after which culminated in the release of 8in8. The album produced a few stellar tracks and others that might not be perfect, but hell they were recorded in an hour, so leniency is due. After the album’s release they encouraged fan art and videos inspired by the songs. One of the best I have seen is embedded after the jump.
The camera angles, props and acting are top notch and all said, this is more professional than you;d expect from a fan made video. I was very much reminded of Wes Anderson.
