Filmmaker and digital designer Chris Bran, who I first encountered in the context of his work with Radiohead (remember the Vapour Brothers "blips" circa Kid A?), has produced a lovely new video for the recording artist KT Tunstall.
About the new video, KT tells Boing Boing…
I think The Tunstallator is genius; I'm a big fan of Chris's
comedy work, and Mr. Fritter seems like a really nice man.
I had an amazing time performing for the video and loved having my
head inside a box for 8 hours.
And Chris says,
KT asked if I could make something for YouTube. I came up with the
obsessive fan idea and went to work. After several visits to my
local hardware store I had accumulated enough wood, sacking, string
and plastic T-rex claws to build 'The Tunstallator'
KT had no idea what I was up to and only saw it when it was
completely finished. She nearly fell off her chair when she saw the
egg whisk/T-Rex claw combo. I took this to be a compliment.
I still have 'The Tunstallator' and spend many an evening
operating it along to both her albums back to back. I think I've
turned into Mr. Fritter (BA/BSc).
