Opiuo - Quack Fat

A stop-motion extravaganza throwback of audio accessories and vintage gaming, the music video uses 240 painted audio cassettes, 56000 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs, a vintage boombox and one retro Walkman to make it all come to life. Directed and animated by Dropbear for Opiuo’s track Quack Fat, which is taken from the Australia-based DJ and producer's 2014 album Mereki, features animated recreations of classic video games – including Tetris, Space Invaders and Breakout – made from tapes and diskettes. 

"I grew up listening to music on cassettes and Walkmans, so I thought it would be a nice idea to bring back the cassette and other retro objects from my childhood and incorporate them into a music video, I like the juxtaposition of Opiuo's new sound and the retro imagery." ~ Dropbear founder Jonathan Chong.

The audio cassetes were sourced from second-hand shops, which were harder to find these days as they aren't as popular as they used to be. A lot of the other objects were from Dropbear’s personal collection.
