David Zellner explains "Wet Gold"

David and Nathan Zellner, the super-talented filmmaking brothers who you can actually see as actors in Andrew Bujalski’s new film Beeswax, made this new video for Austin’s Octopus Project:

I asked David to explain where they were coming from, in their latest piece of inventive filmmaking. He says:

“For this video we were interested in combining theatrical, heavily-stylized elements with a very natural, organic setting. The image of the green ghosts (which are part of OP’s stageshow) on the end of the jetty at high tide had been in my head for sometime. We’re big fans of stop-motion animation, and wanted the singing boat to have that wonderfully clunky but tactile quality you can’t get with CGI. The psychedelic hermit crabs, I have no idea how they came about, but we were obsessed with them from conception. It just seemed like only appropriate way to wrap things up.”
