Incubus Fans Vs Modest Mouse Fans

A few months ago Inucbus had a contest that gave fans the opportunity to make a music video for the band. In my opinion the results were pretty mediocre and uninspired. Made me wish I had some talent for film, or had the time at that point to learn the software. But reading through today I found a music video made for Modest Mouse in a similar contest. This to me seems way more inspired and original. Here it is with the description straight from

"Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each "shot" of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!".... Max

I am totally digging this video. Very interesting, and you can see the hard work that was put into it. Very maticulous. I hope they get recognition for their work on it.

Yeah I wasn't too impressed with the Incubus videos the fans made. They lacked creativity. Modest Mouse has some more creative fans, it seems.
