Encylopedia Pictura for Panda Bear

San Francisco based, Encylopedia Pictura, has sprung back into music-video-making action! Last month, the collective released a live-action forrest romance for Metronomy. They’ve now followed that up with an all 3D world for Panda Bear.

I loved seeing similar a visual motif expressed across two very different modes of filmmaking. As usual, Encyclopedia Pictura marries wildly imaginative vision with intricately crafted execution to produce a piece you’ll want to watch more than once.

    Ah, i think i get it. Its about gays having children?

    • I wish it were, but unfortunately the first character, I think, is actually a woman.

    Well i thought they were gays too. That plant with the hole was an organic device to meet the two guys’ pieces to produce a kid. Like a womans womb i imagined.

    Wait, isn’t this how Gays do have children ?? That’s what I was told?

    Beautiful animation, a kaleidoscopic success.
