Additionally, Salon is premiering a new animated video by the acclaimed graphic designer and illustratror Stefan G. Bucher for the song "Goodbye Jane" from Stace's album Self-Titled-out last year. A studio performance of the the song serves as the basis for Bucher's video and features rotoscoped animation-a technique that involves hand-tracing over film footage, frame by frame.
