OVERVIEW

The goal for this project was to  create a music video that placed a practical set and live actors into fully animated environments, which were built in After Effects and Premiere.

This video is for a song called ‘Domino’ my band released in October 2018. I had been kicking around a rough version of the music video concept over the fall of 2019, and finally began sketching out ideas after having a conversation with Ali El-Gasseir — a local producer and creative currently at Watts Media. I worked with Ali on sourcing cast and crew, as well as lining up the use of Canon C200 for the shoot on green screen at the Seattle Central Creative Academy studio.

I carried the vision of the project from the original treatment and sketches, through storyboarding, creating a shotlist, and into the final animation, editing, compositing, and color-correction.

This video was an amazingly difficult and rewarding self-directed passion project, and gave me the chance to deeply explore the capabilities of After Effects and Premiere. The collaborations with local sculptor/performer Elijah Evenson, actor Linnea Ingalls, and producer Ali El-Gasseir were both fruitful and creatively satisfying. I hope to work with any or all of them on more projects in the future.
