Over the summer, I helped a very talented friend/director/cinematographer Paul Yee with a music video he directed and produced for the Japanese punk band Peelander-Z. The video “Mad Tiger” is part live-action lolcat and part kiddie show weirdness. I made the Peelander-Z dolls (P-Green, P-Yellow, P-Pink and The Squid) that are viciously attacked by a mad tiger, known in real life as Cobi the cat. The prop budget was limited, so I used scrap fabric for the bodies, buttons for the eyes, and catnip and cotton balls for the stuffing.
Did I mention the karaoke subtitles?
