We often describe an artist's full commitment to a project in physiological terms—pouring his blood, sweat, tears, heart, and soul into the piece. Director Kris Moyes examines what that creative energy would actually look like for Grizzly Bear's latest video, Gun-Shy, through a collection of surreal animated gifs.

Gun-Shy is off of Grizzly Bear's third album, 2012's Shields, which you can grab from iTunes, Amazon, and Google Music. The gifs, however, are free from Grizzly Bear's website.
