“All This Time Running” is reminiscent of solid 70’s folksongs and Craig Cardiff’s rich flinty vocals add to the nostalgia. He’ll remind you of Gordon Lightfoot amidst banjos. The video’s creative juxtaposition of animated created elements with the band will compel you to look closer as you’re listening.
The video for “All This Time Running” uses stop motion animation/ multimedia animation and took over 200+ hours to complete, telling the story of coming back to ourselves and all the things we love. It’s a visual exploration of the statement: The Trouble Is You Think You Have Time (But You Don’t).
Teasing the visual elements of this idea from space, to ocean to mountains and over the edge of the world, the video for “All This Time Running” (Directed by Alex Huard and Graham Bieri with Craig Cardiff) has been called a beautiful stoner’s mix of Monty Python stop motion, dressed in children’s book whimsy. An ode to the scramble and dashing about that we both miss, and also, don’t miss.
This video is a visual break and audio reminder from True North Records artist Craig Cardiff to pause and enjoy the moment, and also remind us that, we think we have time, but we don’t. — Craig Cardiff
