Guitar Player Magazine has premiered folky singer/songwriter Katie Garibaldi's new music video "Star in the East." The video was made by claymation and stop motion artist Marc Morgan, which pays homage to the classic Christmas movies of the '60s that we all know and love.
As told to GuitarPlayer.com, Garibaldi says, "'Star in the East' is a song I wrote about the biblical story of the three kings traveling by the light of the star that's guiding them to Bethlehem to the newborn Jesus. The lyrics are written from the perspective of the three kings and because of it's storytelling style, I was envisioning a video that was a throwback to the old school claymation/stop motion children's Christmas movies. I couldn't get the idea out of my head and I was so lucky and excited to find Mac Morgan by discovering some of his amazing work online. He happily took on the project and I love the personality he put into the characters and all the special details. He blew my expectations away!"
