Stop motion has been implemented in all sorts of videos and even some music videos, however, none as detailed as the Gotye ‘Easy Way Out’ film clip. This video is taken from the perspective of an individual who merely stands in one spot and turns in circles. As the viewer turns, the story continues to change in stop motion depicting the life of the main character.
What’s more is that the stop motion combines a real world character with cartoon backgrounds and settings. Any groups or institutions who have looked towards using stop motion for any projects now have a high level of competition to contend with. The main character’s personality is lazy and miserable, which is personified perfectly with the slow deterioration of his settings. By the end of the Gotye ‘Easy Way Out’ film clip, the main character is burnt out at his apartment.
