Freckle is a music video created by visual artist and computational biologist Mike Cantor, with music by Brandon Patton, bass player for MC Frontalot.

Darcy Prendergast and Seamus Spilsbury created this nice animation for “Time To Go” by Wax Tailor and Aloe Blacc. It’s so well done that it looks like parts of it were CG, but Darcy assures it’s all stop-motion. The crochetted creature’s little adventure was shot over the course of three and a half months (six days a week, 12-hour days).
