Making music videos can be a real hassle and expensive if you want one of those videos showing your band playing in an empty warehouse with shaky cameras and no amps. That has made bands turn into making animated videos to promote their music because they don’t really have to do anything other than pay an animator and they can get much more creative in it, just like we’ve seen with Napalm Death, Obituary, Megadeth and Iron Maiden among many others. And the latest band to be cartooned is Sunflower Dead who decided to animate Korn’s frontman Jonathan Davis.
Frontman Michael Del Pizzo comments about the video:
“Music videos…they drive me nuts, until a great idea comes along! For this one, I took the reins by writing the video treatment. We repeatedly hear that SFD needs to be animated.
What better way to do that than with a Scooby Doo-inspired video for our new album’s title track featuring one of heavy music’s most unique frontmen, Jonathan Davis?
My idea, combine the SFD story line with Jonathan’s past experience working with dead bodies. Boom, a match made in heaven brought to life by the amazing animators at Smorgasbord Productions. This is my favorite SFD video by far.”
