Technically speaking, the “There Is No Hourglass, Only Sand” video is a feat unto itself. Though it may look like film in some ways, this video was made by taking 596 still shots, which when played back at 3.17 frames per second matched the tempo of the song. All of the props you see are handmade from paper and cardboard. Some are pinned to the wall while others were suspended by fishing line. But don’t let all of this technical talk let you think that this is all brains and no heart. Quite the contrary. The band and the world they created for the video is charming and inviting and their presence and performances are the true stars of the video.
