Dark Force – music video

Rotoscoping and character animation for satirical music video about Trump

Here are some snippets from an animated music video I created for a satirical website in back in 2016, featuring a certain US president – at the time he was just a candidate.

The track is based on Katy Perry’s Dark Horse. Some of the shots are straight from her official music video, where I’ve painted out Katy, replacing her with various animated characters. I kept the usage of frames from her video to below 10%, to stay under the ‘fair use’ reasonable limit.

The part of which I’m most proud was my idea to combine the Sphinx from Katy Perry’s video with Trump, to create the menacing TrumpSphinx!
