Icarus of Pittsburgh and other short films

While trying to figure out what the hell, exactly, the lyrics to Aimee Mann’s superb song Red Vines mean, a friend pointed me to the wonderful animated video (Quicktime). The video was done by artist Evan Mather. I was interested in his work and enjoyed it. His animation workflow involves Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, and Final Cut Pro. I especially liked his short film Icarus of Pittsburgh, but perhaps that’s just location-based snobbery.

As is typical in these matters, I’m the last person in the world to know about Mather’s work.
