 Paige Beller

Failed Attempts and Cigarettes video

Sofaburn Records

This 2-D, stop motion animated video, directed by Katie Anne Marks, is about what a pain overthinking anything can be. It features a rather confused guy, Paige as a puppet, driving, and many guys falling through the air, then falling upward in an instant, all standing in for muddled, confused thinking, the kind that makes for failed attempts and smoking.

The unease of the spooky, ambient synth music by Jason Watkins (Mouth of the Architect) fits the images perfectly, with the feeling that you're dwelling on something too much. It's really good animation and music, perfect for taking your mind off of what you may be obsessing about, and a lot of fun to watch too.
