Alumni music trio releases video, profiled in magazine

Times New Viking (TNV) is a Columbus-based trio that fits very close to our little CCAD hearts—all three members are Fine Arts graduates from the Class of 2004. Jared Phillips, Beth Murphy, and Adam Elliot, the members of TNV, were recently featured in Columbus Monthly magazine for their latest music video, No Room to Live.

The video for No Room to Live was directed and edited by Columbus artists Brandon Reichard and Pelham Johnston. Each frame (nearly 3,000) was printed from real video and then hand drawn, colored, or decorated by 40 artists, and put back together to create a two-and-a-half minute musical piece of art.
It now has nearly 26,000 views on Vimeo.

“It came together like this,” wrote Columbus Monthly’s Joel Oliphint. “Reichard and Johnston put a simple coloring book computer effect over the original video to make it look like a black-and-white line drawing. Then, after adjusting the video’s speed to 12 frames per second, every single frame was printed out on 8.5 x 11-inch paper.”

“Johnston and Reichard gave the artists a paper-clipped packet of printed frames to color or decorate however they desired over two months; most artists received 12 frames (or one second), but some did more,” Oliphint continued.
