Peter Sluszka is recognized as one of the best stop-motion animators in the biz. Working alongside such directors as Michel Gondry, Lauri Faggioni and Adria Petty, Sluszka has brought some very outlandish ideas to life. Regina Spektor's "Samson" is Sluszka's music video directorial debut and it finds him combining his stop-motion specialty with beautifully shot performance footage. Unlike the whimsical animation in his other work, "Samson" has a darker tone as it focuses on a series of constantly evolving paper cut-outs and sculptures.
