The Ruffled Crow

Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things

Number One by Playgroup

I’ve had this video kicking around my computers for six or seven years at the very least. At the time I picked it up, computer motion capture hadn’t hit Hollywood and, besides hair, character movement was a Big Thing in computer animation and MMORPGs.

The computer animation itself is excellent, but what really stands out is the direction; throughout the video you’ll see signature dance moves you recognize immediately.

Playgroup is a British ‘electroclash‘ band and the tune Number One was released in 2001. Electroclash is a mashup of techno, punk, and synthpop that gained popularity in the late 90’s.
