New Noise recently premiered “Along The Timey Road,” the newest advance video for the upcoming Particle Kid LP Time Capsule. J. Micah Nelson created the clip himself, and told the site about the process. “Took forever, made tons of mistakes, learned a lot, came out what it is,” he says. “Rotoscoping is an animation technique I started experimenting with while making parts of the upcoming film I did with Neil Young, TRANS: The Animated Story. I had never done it before and hardly knew what I was doing, so there were many happy accidents, which led to discovering new techniques or creative ideas. I think I’ve gotten better at the process since then, but there are definitely some choices I would tell my past-self now to avoid doing to save time and aches. I always love the way it ends up looking though, [mess-ups] and all.”
