STOP THE MOTION, START THE COMMOTION: THE WORK OF ADAM BIZANSKI

Adam Bizanski is an Israeli director and animator known for his innovative stop-motion music videos and short films. Hailing from a self-taught animation background, he is best known for his award winning music video collaborations with bands such as the Shins, Wolf Parade, and Zero 7.

In 2005, Bizanski's animated video for The Shins "Pink Bullets", depicting a love story between two soulful paper-made cows, was amongst the first five videos chosen to demonstrate iTunes music store's new capability to sell videos.
