"Samson" (Sire/Warner Bros.)
Peter Sluszka, director | Hana Shimizu, producer | Hornet & Adria Petty Design, production co | Ivan Abel, DP | Anita Chao, editor | Description: Director Peter Sluszka uses his always inventive stop-motion animation to underscore both the melancholy and beauty of this twisted love song. Regina Spektor performs at her piano and wanders around while Sluszka manipulates intricately folded and arranged paper for an effect that often seems like M.C. Escher's artwork come to life. Sluzska previously served as animation director for various videos for Michel Gondry, Adira Petty and Lauri Faggioni. -- watch "Samson"
