A music video for the song "8/16" by Helms Alee, from their new album 'Weatherhead' (Hydra Head Records). It will incorporate Beavis and Butthead-style, hand-drawn animation of the band watching live-action, 90s-style music videos of themselves referencing classic videos by the likes of Metallica, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Michael Jackson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, MC Hammer, and more. Animation has already begun, and we are planning to shoot the live action video parts in Seattle in August.

Directed by Andrew James Cox, who was also responsible for the Torche - "U.F.O." music video.
