Gabe Askew: Grizzly Bear “Two Weeks” (Unofficial)

Taking a break from his day job in architectural visualization, Gabe Askew’s fan video for Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks” goes in an entirely different direction from the official video directed by Patrick Daughters (embedded after the jump).

Gabe’s 2.5D opus is a delightful journey through countless faux analogue dioramas inhabited by paper-mâché-like creatures and flattened illustrations dangling from the proscenium. Gabe nimbly avoids the “say cow, see cow” approach, instead opting for metaphorical devices that mix naturalistic imagery with human forms gliding, battling and embracing throughout myriad environments.

Thanks for the tips, Jostein Finnekasa and Jeffrey Zablotny!

This is wonderful. I don’t want to bring down the official clip… I think that’s brilliant as well; but to me Gabes work compliments this song on a much higher level.


Worth posting again.. this is such a fucking great video, just a ton of passion in this.
