Steve Sievers “Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am very passionate about music & animation. Getting asked to do a music video from a great band was quiet an honor. Was even more special that the song & animation features Jonathan Davis of KoRn. I remember waiting outside for hours in the 90’s to meet him at KoRn concerts. Now bringing him to life in animation form is something I will talk proudly about forever. I’m hoping this leads us to doing more animated music videos in the future. Plus I am extremely grateful that the band let us put Supa Pirate Booty Hunt in the music video since that is how they found us.”
Dahveed: “The union between Sunflower Dead and Smorgasbord Productions was epic! Michael Del Pizzo came up with a very strong concept and he and his bandmates trusted us to take it to the next level. I cranked their track up and let the ideas flow through me and onto the screen. After I finished sketching out the first rough animatic I expected pages of revisions and criticism but found only praise. Our visions were in sync. For once in my career we did not need to reign in the crazy! My amazing crew of deeply talented animators and designers helped me bring the finished video to life in a short amount of time! We definitely would welcome the chance to work with SFD again and continue to work with other cutting edge artists.”
