CLIP SHOW: "Flight of Icarus" by Iron Maiden

While the original music video for "Flight of Icarus" was released in 1983, this alternate version was released alongside it on Iron Maiden's 2003 compilation DVD, Visions of the Beast: The Complete Video History. This edit, along with five others featured on Visions, was animated by the now-defunct flash animation studio, Camp Chaos. It was brought to life by interweaving shots of the band from the original video with newer animation meant to evoke the image of the 1983 EP cover:


  1. I'm an Iron Maiden fan and love this song. I actually had never seen either version of the music video until now. I prefer the animated one since the original just looks like somebody goofing off with 80s music video special effects. I love how the animated video incorporated the imagery and style of the album art.

  2. Hi, I was simply checking out this blog and I really admire the premise of the article and this is really informative. I will for sure refer my friends the same. Thanks….2D Animation Studios
