deep cut: the nghiems music video


Last year, we worked together with Oklahoma City renaissance dude James Nghiem on an animated comedy bit taken from one of his standup routines.

When his band The Nghiems completed their record, they approached us about creating a music video for one of the tracks. Working with James on the treatment and bassist-who-happens-to-be-an-incredible-artist Mike Allen on character illustration, we put together something that ticks off something for pretty much everyone:

  • music ✔

  • time travel ✔

  • cute animals ✔

  • Jean Claude Van Damme doing the splits ✔

  • a hot tub ✔

  • a story arc built around a Back to the Future reference ✔
