5476 Miles, 4min, UK, Animation/Music Video
Directed by Terry Thomas
A handmade paper stop motion music video that tells the story of a lonely starling waiting for love.
Movie Review by Kierston Drier
This UK music video directed by Terry Thomas is a reflective, pensive and poetic tribute to both the visual and auditory art forms. Done completely by hand, this paper cutout stop-motion art style is hauntingly beautiful.
The piece is layered with strong symbolism, and rich with poetic and visual undertones. Visual motifs and colour palettes are harmonic with the music and lyrics. As with any form of art, it is open to interpretation: a debate exists as to what the intent of the piece is.
However, whether the music makes you wistful, sorrowful, remensianct or peaceful, it will certainly make you feel something. In this way, 5476 Miles is a beautiful work of art.
