Bent Image Lab Animates The Uncluded’s Organs Music Video


Bent Image Lab and Rob Shaw have recently lent their talent and skill to the creation of a new music video for Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson’s rock duo, The Uncluded. Titled “Organs,” the video emphasizes the painful process of grief and the grace of organ donation, via a dark tale of loss and love as performed by whimsical stop motion insects.

The stop-motion animated video is set up as a children’s stage play, with a grasshopper and a cicada (representing Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson, respectively) sway, strum, and sing about “the importance of giving away your pieces” as the tale of a grieving mother beetle and other ill-fated bugs unfolds around them.

“The story came from a mother listening to the heart of her little girl,” says Shaw. “I thought that was such a sad but beautiful moment and a good structure for the whole thing.”
