Soulless Husks

Stock photos and images are sometimes necessary evils. Whenever I am consulting for a project I try to avoid them. Sometimes however the use of these cheap cookie cutter materials is unavoidable.

Check out this video from Ratatat for Drugs that was created using only stock video. There is something so creepy about the actors, especially in the eyes. Almost like they were aliens pretending to be human I get a feeling similar to the uncanny valley effect.
