Video Static is very pleased to present a commentary by director Monkmus about his Death Cab For Cutie video, "I Will Follow You Into The Dark." Produced for the band's ambitious Directions project — which called for the creation of low budget, non-traditional videos for every song off of their album Plans.
Although Monkmus is well known for his distinctive cartoon animations — if you've seen those very funny Sony PSP ads with the talking squirrels and dustballs, then you've seen his work — this video uses different techniques and mines some more personal terrain to match the confessional tone of this acoustic ballad.
