Anna Ginsburg "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep" (Bombay Bicycle Club 2012)

You wake up and wonder at your journey. What was that light sinking beneath the bedroom floorboards? Was it the moon? Anna Ginsburg takes us on a nocturnal journey as a young boy endeavours to scoop light from the moon in a totally magical music video, How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep, from Bombay Bicycle Club. The puppet animation was triggered by one of the stories in Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino. There is a full making of blog here, demonstrating the process from initial sketches and scrapbook of ideas through to manufacture. It is a impressively detailed college of thoughts and images, all chronologically catalogued. Of course, music and animation need to blend and the fusion is fabulous as witnessed by the large number of hits on YouTube. A graduate of Edinburgh College of Art Anna works between that the Scottish capital and London.
