Nieuwland Directs New Lake of Stew Video

Justin Nieuwland was recently commissioned by Lake of Stew, six-piece acoustic string band from Montreal, to create this throwback music video for the track Hey Bully. It’s a beautifully crafted homage to early, rubber-hose animation from the likes of Bill Nolan and Ub Iwerks. Nieuwland directed and edited and he had a small crew helping animate (full credits below).
