Man Man, Banana Ghost - Redux by Jeremy Mayhew

Badge finalist Finalist for The Film Skillet Winter 2012/2013 Animation Contest in Animation - 2D

Broken hearts, handlebar moustaches, vagabond lice...

Official HD Redux of the original Banana Ghost music video.

----
"...an unconventional foray into hauntingly enchanted territories. The carnivalesque incantation is accompanied by a clip donning a Victorian Period-aesthetic, and it's made complete with dandyish black and white characters that look cut out from a Lewis Carroll cautionary tale. Like a Carroll anecdote, too, the video's line between fantasy and nightmare is effectively nonexistent."
- SPIN

"Director Jeremy Mayhew's cut-and-paste aesthetic and half-human/half-animal creatures give the video the feel of a black and white "Monty Python's Flying Circus", complete with multiple appearances from the "dying little bird" in the lyrics and a turtle/bird/knight playing a guitar solo on a bow and arrow."

Film Name: Man Man – Banana Ghost Redux
A black and white animated film with still drawings of cartoons and key human characters. Music moved the animated film forward. The film frames contain a lot of animation and 3-D effects. In the end, it appears that the key character dies of a broken heart. Good use of still drawings and animated effects on these drawings.

one word; WEIRD! I didn't understand this film at all. I must be dumb. I agree with that guy; very catchy music.
