Director Erik Tillmans (whose resume also includes animation work on films like Kung Fu Panda, Enchanted and Team America) sends in this video he created for The Black Comets‘ “One Thousand Stars.”

The video’s Final Fantasy inspiration is sadly prescient, as some six months later, the band would move on to play new roles. See more of Tillman’s work via his DJ Shadow remix scored reel here.

  1. Loved all the Final Fantasy references. I wonder if Dragon Warrior 2 was the inspiration for the single file line of band members when in the towns? Because it didn’t work like that in Final Fantasy.


  2. Maybe a little Earthbound or Chrono Trigger in there, too, although I’m sure there were other games with trailing-parties before having to jump to the 16-bit era.
