Stop-Motion Video | Flight Of The Mockingbird

When New Zealand-based Phish fan Nick Setteducato received a set of Phish bobbleheads from a friend, he wanted to doing something unique to feature the bobbles as a way of saying thanks. Nick first came up with the idea of replacing the four presidents faces with the faces of the four members of Phish to create “Mt. Phishmore.” As time went on the project evolved to a full-scale stop-motion video in which Setteducato and Amy Brennan spent tons of their free time building puppets, props, sets and more for the just-unveiled Flight Of The Mockingbird short film.

Nick used The White Tape version of “Divided Sky” as the soundtrack for his effort. So take a moment and follow The Famous Mockingbird as he travels through night and day to deliver The Helping Friendly Book to the Rhombus in time for the “Divided Sky” ritual at Mt Phishmore:

Head to Nick’s blog for a behind-the-scenes look at all that went into creating the film. Setteducato created the film as a labor of love. Nick asks that if you enjoy what he made that you consider donating to The Mockingbird Foundation.
