The fantastic stop-motion music video for “Favorite Place” by Austin, Texas-based band Black Books was directed, produced and edited by Christophe Thockler. It features “10 000 photos, 1 km of thread, 350 reels of thread, 73 000 embroidery stitches, 6 kg of fabric scraps, 100 needles and sewing pins.” The embroidery-filled “Favorite Place” track is from the Black Books’ new EP album Aquarena, which is available to purchase on iTunes and Bandcamp.
A playful and (I hope) creative video for a powerful and melodic song by the american band Black Books. The aim was to create an energetic, fun and at the same time warm and intimate music video to illustrate the track. Cloth is very symbolic, warm, personal, and of course colorful, so, I chose to explore the world of sewing and play with material and tools.
