Any one who makes their bread & butter from animating for networks & music videos is good peoples to me. Not only are resident artists Chris Smith, Jesse Casey, & Michelle Higa the members of Mixtape Club, but they also:
love Jaydee & Dada
throw creative food competitions
& have an intergalactic space hound named Porterhouse.

So what’s next for Mixtape Club? I had the honor of previewing their newest music video for My Morning Jacket at their at-home screening. The video’s still unreleased so I’ll leave you in suspense but be on the look out for it! It’s mind-fucking awesome.
