MOONES

by PETER SLUSZKA

Peter Sluszka directs a music video for the U.K. band Moones for their single Better Energy. Stop motion, claymation, pixilation, puppetry and so much more are incorporated in this video for the marooned band. Shipwrecked on an iceberg floating in the Arctic seas, the band tries to make fire and play music using instruments made from flotsam while they desperately try to find help. The boys make the best of the situation with the help of their pet kitty who expertly supplies them with delicacies from the sea. The band has escaped the clutches of a sea monster that ravaged their ship, but can they find help from a captain or two?

Peter Sluszka, winner of various awards and accolades, may be the most calm and patient director in the business. With strong roots in stop motion, it’s easy to understand why. It also helps that he's gleaned a thing or two from his time working alongside the legendary Michel Gondry.

Peter is a skilled mixed-media director, but above all, he is a clever designer and a fabrication whiz. It's not uncommon to find him fully immersed in a project and getting his hands dirty with set design, fabrication, or even animation.

Having directed original content  animation, commercial productions, music videos, television series and feature films, Peter's portfolio is brimming with live action, CG and stop-motion feats. He’s manipulated everything from traditional foam latex puppets to meat, origami, snow, yarn and (literally) tons of clay.
