Like many iPhone owners, I’ve whored the crap out of the Hipstamatic app. Taking more redundant photos than my gigabytage can handle. But now, noise rockers A Place To Bury Strangers have taken it to a whole other level, constructing an entire music video from Hipstamatic stills. Makes me wonder… were they paid for this!?

A Place To Bury Strangers Oliver Ackermann explained the video, saying “The pictures are all take with Ina’s 1969 Film with the iPhone application Hipstamatic. I did this because it is one of the most common ways photos are taken and shared at this moment in time. The photos were all taken since our van was stolen in Italy. Once I started importing photos and assembling them then I realized with a couple of the cool driving sequences that I shot I should shoot some things in an animation style. The story in the video is personal and reflective of our lives over the past year or so.”

Take a look at the ‘So Far Away’ video below, from their upcoming EP ‘Onwards To The Wall‘ EP due February 7 through Dead Oceans.
