Giangrande - "Paper Plane"
Directed by Gianluca Maruotti, a talented Italian stop motion animator, puppeteer and illustrator, Paper Plane is a lovely interpretation of Massimo Giangrande's track from his titular debut album. Shot using a series of flat paper puppets on layered backgrounds, an animal band accompanies a sullen looking fellow grieving the loss of his love.
I've never heard about Giangrande before, but his work really reminds me of a folkier version of Muse in parts. Check out the album if you haven't already, really love the sound and atmosphere that they delivered. Maruotti also released a nice making of featuring another track by Giangrande (Much More), which you can view after the break.
