New Sad Tax Video "The Sun Is A Horrible Thing"

With my better half out on business for a couple weeks I figured it was a good time to do an annoying project in the house that I could start and finish in a few days. My latest Sad Tax album has been getting a really positive response from people so I got busy on making a Sad Tax video. This song "The sun is a horrible thing" might not be a catchy pop song but it had the right texture for what I had in mind and I like anthropomorphizing landscapes. Making the video involved quickly shooting and editing a lip-syncing video then arranging each frame of the video into a couple dozen contact sheets, then printing each of them out, then mangling and altering them, spraying them with water and carefully scanning them in and re-animating it. This is what that looks like.
