Zoal, Face Dancer (Concept Music Video)
This self-initiated project was a test of how to use multiple repetitious patterns in a way that would still make the motion piece interesting. Instead of focusing on trying to fit the motion with the tempo and melody, I instead went with non-rhymatic motion: motion that fit with the mood of the music.
The music video is set to 4 “story arcs”: the seedling, the forest, the flood and the wildfire. To add variety, I’ve created 4 different leaf shapes for each story arc, accumulating in a total of 40 different animations (as seen in the gifs). The music video was meant to be repetitious, but that had variety. Rotoscoping was used for the opening and closing titles, and for the animals and flora in each story arc, even in the fire arc.
