Peter Lowey at Piepants directed and animated the music video for Gotye‘s popular song, Save Me, off his album Making Mirrors. The video which blends hand-drawn animation with CGI, tells the story of an animated human-like figure which attempts to put himself together, assembled from scattered pieces. But, it only becomes whole once he meets his other half, a half that has a heart.

Wouter De Backer (1980), also known as Gotye, is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter. Gotye has released three studio albums independently and one album featuring remixes of tracks from his first two albums. He is a member of the Melbourne indie-pop trio The Basics, who have released three studio albums and numerous other titles since 2002. Gotye’s 2011 single “Somebody That I Used to Know” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the fifth Australian-based artist to do so and the second Belgian, while he has won five ARIA Awards and three Grammy Awards at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Show.

Piepants animation is the website of Peter Lowey, an award winning animator and film maker animation from Melbourne Australia that specialises in 2d and is influenced by early Disney animation. Lowey has made many animated short films, commercials and music videos, while his work is known to have a distinct style with fluid movement that’s quite rare to see in today’s 2d animations. His short film the Little Dictator won the best animated film at the End of the pier film festival 2007, Sidewalk Scribble won the Annecy YouTube award in 2011 and Polo’s Robot was the best Australian short film at MIAF in 2011 and went on to play at many film festivals around the world.
