VJ Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong) created this sweet stop-motion music video for Hudson’s ‘Against the Grain.’

Nothing is better than a stop-motion/indie-folk artist collaboration. The result of this pair coming together is almost too adorable. The video features a series of pencils and colored pencils, rhythmically moving in kaleidoscope patterns. The colored pencils immediately evoke a nostalgic, childish delight which is enhanced with Hudson’s grainy voice. The warm texture of the video collides perfectly with the sweet lyrics of the song.

Not only is the video playful and sunny, but the artistry is impressive. The stop-motion approach is often looked over, but Dropbear achieves more than a mere smile. The ‘Against the Grain’ video is effortless and fun.
