About the video

“What if it was you?” was created entirely out of Lego using the stop motion animation technique.

The video offers a tongue-in-cheek look at lesbian relationships; the queer community will undoubtedly be entertained by the many inside jokes and all-too-familiar scenarios that are depicted.

Stop motion animation involves taking a series of pictures, where characters are slightly manipulated for each shot. When edited together, it creates the illusion of motion.

The video was shot over 2 months and required approximately 60 hours of work to complete. Over 1600 individual pictures were used in the video.

This is the band’s first attempt at stop motion. The girls described the process as “fun, but extremely painful at times”. Thankfully, no band members were harmed in the making of the video.
