The Avalanches "The Was" (Chris Hopkins, Al Smithee, dir.)

The Was, 2016

What is The Was? The Was is amazing, a 10-minute ode to classic NYC soundtracked by The Avalanches. Classic movie and TV clips, and some cartoons, get rotoscoped ande edited to create a distinctly original new work/work — think of it like remix culture applied to a music video.  As to who made it? The directing credit goes to The Avalanches creative director Chris Hopkins and our old friend Al Smithee, but the opening title shouts out Soda_Jerk, a visual sampling collective that specializes in this sort of genius.
