It started as an idea about a lonely robot who sells ice cream. In order to survive in a severe reality he recreates an imaginary world where he lives every day, like he did during the best time of his life.
After several years of production and a one-year festival run we’re ready to present our first animated short film to you! Giant thanks to everybody who participated in the project for a fantastic work!

On December 12th and 13th, the band headed north of Los Angeles to film the music video for “Suffer Well”. Directed by Anton Corbijn, the video was filmed on an old “50’s town” film set in the hills near Six Flags Magic Mountain.
Filmed by the band’s webmaster, the following video feature gives you an insiders point of view to the filming of this music video.
Intro - The intro, set to the Tiga Mix of “Suffer Well”.
DM’s Bridal Shop - Footage from the bridal shop scenes. The Lord Of The Dance - Every take, uncut, from the dance sequence inside of the bar.
The Transformation - A stationary camera captured Dave’s transformation into his character.
Dave The Snowman - Dave freezing in the ice. The location was very cold, and the scene required Dave to sit in “snow” (many bags of ice). He had to do multiple takes. He truly suffered well (sorry, I had to). :)
Future Heaven - Some scenes from the cameo from Dave’s wife, and the “end credits”.
