Hey Rosetta, "New Sum (Nous Somme)"
Harkening the Richard Linklater film Waking Life, this new(ish) rotoscoping video for “New Sum (Nous Sommes)” by Hey Rosetta! is a nice little bit of live action animation. Directed by Jesse Davidge and produced at Blatant Studios in Vancouver, the clip features performance footage mainly filmed at the band’s sold out show at the Commodore Ballroom late last year. Interwoven in the narrative is a subplot involving singer Tim Baker’s back alley encounter with a kind old soul. So there’s that, too.
