She Comes Around Video

To make the video for ‘She Comes Around’ by Paul and the Tall Trees, Leon Michels edited together recently discovered Super-8 footage that was shot by Nachume in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Nachume manipulated a lot of the footage himself, painting and scratching the film to create abstractions, splicing it to rearrange the order, and shooting his paintings and sculptures in stop motion to create simple animations.
