Take it Easy: Sand Animation Splendor

It took Cesar Díaz Melén­dez three months, using only a cam­era, light table and sand, to pro­duce this sand ani­mat­ed film that serves as a video for the song, “No cor­ras tan­to,” which loose­ly trans­lates to “Take it Easy.” And, rather strik­ing­ly, Cesar made the film using no added effects or post pro­duc­tion. The Mak­ing of No cor­ras tan­to gives you a good look inside the pro­duc­tion process. Oth­er videos by the Madrid-based artist can be viewed here.

A quick PS: The song accom­pa­ny­ing the video was writ­ten by Cesar’s band, El Com­bolin­ga. Vis­it the band’s MySpace page.
