Everybody Deserves – music video

I recently worked with the guys at Imotion Media to create this fun little music video. The brief was to take some green screen footage of the band’s lead members and find a treatment/narrative that works with the ethos and feel of the song. I settled on blending the footage with a lot of archive material, as if we’re channel flipping a TV. Continue reading Everybody Deserves – music video

Once everyone was happy with the edit, I dropped it to 10 frames per second to get a stop-motion look and processed each frame with a proprietary image processing algorithm, to get the painted effect (After Effects plugins weren’t quite doing it for me). The result is rather pretty I think.
