Captain Metal – Die Ärzte

In 2012 the german band »die ärzte« released their latest album »AUCH«. For each of the 16 tracks they asked a team to do an animated musicvideo. We were more than happy that the track »Captain Metal« was assigned to us. The fast paced rhythm and the quirky lyrics inspired us to a lot of visual jokes. We developed the concept, did the storyboard, animatic and the animation. In a wild metal manner of course!
