My very first time directing an animation + music video!
I worked with a team of designers and an animator on this one, and I did stuff all across the board… AND IT WAS SO FUN!
I wanted to incorporate Australian surf iconography from the 90’s, Reg Mombassa influences, tropicana, a bit of psychedelia, and Adventure Time stylised characters. I learnt so much from this experience, and it was so motivating.
This video is an entry for a music video competition run by ACMI, Triple J, and the band Jinja Safari.
There are so many good ones up on YouTube, but ours is the only 2D animation with a solid narrative ;)
Wish us luck - finalists announced in Jan 2014!
