I'll start by warning that the song, reminiscent of Jack Johnson, might not be to everyone's taste; I'll continue by saying this is probably one the best brickfilm music videos I've seen. The technical aspects of this film aren't especially spectacular, as some dolly shots are rough, the framerate is disappointingly low, and the animation is jerky in places. But the quality of the direction is what really stands out here, as shots flow together beautifully to tell a unified story that perfectly echos and extends the message of the song. It's obvious that a lot of time and effort was put into pre-production, and the final result is a testament to how handsomely that extra work can pay off. Worth a listen if you're an acoustic folk-rock fan, but definitely worth a view for any brickfilm fan.
