Portugal. The Man. Releases New Animated Video

For their new video, “All Your Light (Times Like These),” Portland’s Portugal. The Man. passed the reigns over to filmmakers Justin Kramer and Lee Hardcastle.  The pair created a clever Claymation treatment which depicts an epic struggle for survival in a dangerous world of colorful caves and plastic cups.  When singer/songwriter John Gourley begins the song with the lyrics, “I’m just a shadow of a bigger man,” the sculpted creatures represent far more than what is really just molded clay.   The song is off of this year’s release, In the Mountain. In the Cloud.
