Earlier this week, David Crowder*Band released the new video for SMS (Shine) from their latest album, Church Music. The video was filmed using stop motion filming and a toy many will remember fondly, the Lite Brite®. SMS (Shine) is comprised of about 1200 frames. In true DC*B fashion, none of the video segments were looped because “that would have been easy. Plus, it wouldn’t have looked as cool.”If you’re not on the DC*B Newsletter mailing list, you may have missed some fun facts surrounding the making of this video.

Q: So, a Lite Brite, eh? Like from when we were kids?
A: The very same! We here at the DC*B have a fondness for nostalgia.
Q: It looks like it took a long time.
A: That’s not really a question, but yes. It took a really long time to make.
Q: So how many pictures did you have to take? Tell us you at least looped some stuff?
A: There were about 1200 frames. Maybe more. And no, because that would have been easy. Plus, it wouldn’t have looked as cool.
Q: Did you have help?
A: Thank goodness yes. Over 80 of our friends helped out. Even still, it took about a month to make.
Q: So I bet you ate a lot of pizzas.
A: Again, not a question, but yes. 148 pizzas to be exact.
