A little background information...

I made the video for a friend’s band and it took 8 months to create outside of my day job.

How was the film was made?

The music video was animated on a traditional multiplane table that I built from timber and shelving brackets. The puppets and sets were created out of white tissue paper, painted with watercolour to get the bright colours needed for the aesthetic. For the lighting I just used several clamp desk lamps and to minimise reflections, a polarise filter on the camera. It was all a game of trial and error!

It was my first foray into cut-out animation – a very fun way to animate. I hope to do a similar project again soon and address all of the things I learnt from this production in order to improve upon them!
