Down For Whatever





Despite the lack of posts recently I'm glad to report it's been pretty busy for me during lockdown and whatever period of the pandemic we are currently in. A few illustrations and some chunky animation projects have kept me beavering away in my scrappy makeshift home office (aka the living room) such as this third video for Dutch producer Kilder's latest single Down For Whatever (featuring Friday Night Plans). After the first two mouth-centric videos we upped the ante and I had half of a face to work with. The singer, Friday Night Plans, supplied smartphone performance footage wearing a hat that obscured her eyes and created a striking look when treated for the video. The footage went into Cinema 4D and a 3d displacement map of the face was created that I could shade with light and texture and get the camera in close to capture interesting visual details. The performance was edited into an abstract sci-fi tinged environment with psychedelic 3d mountains and objects reacting to the music. All in all it was a blast to work on. You can see this and other Kilder videos on the site here.
