It's a film so labour intensive that it took up to 16 hours to record just one second.

But an Edinburgh animator’s painstaking efforts have been rewarded with thousands of viewers for her latest film – the official video for the new single by indie band Bombay Bicycle Club. The stop-motion dream sequence which accompanies How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep lasts less than four minutes but took six months to make, with creator Anna Ginsburg, 22, listening to the song at least 25 times every day as she worked on it.

The video received more than 70,000 YouTube hits within a week of its release, beating Rihanna to hit number one in the Universal record label’s daily online chart of its own artists.
