PWEI – Angry Man’s Deathbed and working with Character Animator

Indie dance/ industrial/ hiphop mashup band Pop Will Eat Itself put out the call for music videos for their new LP Anti-Nasty League, and it was the same week that Adobe released their new Creative Cloud App Character Animator.  CA uses your webcam to track facial movements and copies them onto a Photoshop puppet.  It’s ridiculously simple to animate when your head movements and voice command the puppet.

I was able to draw up a few puppets using the Paper by 53 app on my iPad, airdropped them into Photoshop, split up the parts and sang along to the webcam; voila, the majority of the music video was complete.  I love living in 2015.

The song I chose was “Angry Man’s Deathbed”, as I like drawing Angry Old Men.  I find them relatable.

PWEI’s new album is available exclusively here.
