Michna’s Solid Gold

Watch more with these video collections:

Mixing stop motion and motion design, director Christophe Thockler searches for “beauty in the mundane” for Michna’s Solid Gold. The 2015 music video features 60 rocks from 15 different countries. He explains:

“I like to think about the idea that the casting of this video is made of ancient majestic characters from all around the world, it’s also a tribute to nature, with small bits of our planet dancing together during three minutes.”

Identify all of the rocks used in the video on Thockler’s site.
