Making of the "Extremely Sorry" Claymations


For those of you who didn't know what to think about the claymation introductions in "Extremely Sorry," I ask you: have you ever done claymation? As someone who has ('99...high school pottery class), it's nearly impossible. Man, does it take a lot of time. But, Flip got a sick crew, with Edgar Alvarez, AKA Alter Eddie, and his colleagues from Colombia, to do a completely professional job. Few current videos have incorporated the same sense of childish fun that Powell videos once possessed. Flip's claymations made "Extremely Sorry" quite unique, so see how they made Geoff Rowley and the whole team into Gumby.
