Daft Punk Receives New Fan-Made Music Video

Daft Punk has always been known for their creative animations, especially as a result of their movie-turned-music-video Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem. Fans around the world have provided their own re-interpretations of their music such as the viral Daft Bodies - "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" video or N-A Zine's "Loser Yourself to Dance", however none have quite gotten the same attention as 17-year old Israel James and partner Matteo Shezmen "Shez" Delli Zotti.

At the age of 15, Israel paired with Shez to blend their 2-d and 3-d graphic skills to create a music video for Daft Punk's "Give Life Back to Music," and within a few short months it has received hundreds of thousands of views. As explained in a short interview, the Australian teenager spent eight months creating the five-minute long visual experience, and it has already received support from long-time Daft Punk collaborator Georgio Moroder.

The legendary synthesizer pioneer utilizes the teenager's creation as background visual for his life performances, and Israel and Shez see it as "...really humbling and really awesome, but he didn't ask for permission and we aren't getting any recognition for our work."
