Death Cab for Cutie Offer Up Little Bribes
A longtime DCFC fan, Ching's interest in time-lapse photography was spurred by the "Brothers On A Hotel Bed" video from "DIRECTIONS," the DVD companion volume to 2005's Grammy Award-nominated, RIAA platinum-certified label debut, "PLANS." Thus inspired, the San Diego State University film school graduate created the "Little Bribes" clip on his own, which he then Posted on his personal website under the heading, "Looking For A Job." When the members of Death Cab saw Ching's work, they immediately decided to release "Little Bribes" as the track's official video. As if that weren't enough, Ching has since been hired by Atlantic Records to helm a future video project for the label.
Death Cab has long supported the work of new and aspiring filmmakers. Most recently, the animated companion video for "Grapevine Fires," one of the stand-out tracks on 2008's RIAA platinum certified "Narrow Stairs," was honored as the year's "Best Music Video" by the Los Angeles Film Festival. Directed by Walter Robot, a.k.a. the team of multimedia artist Bill Barminski and writer Christopher Louie, the award-winning clip can be seen - here
