1080 please!

White River is a music video commissioned to Anthony Lejeune, Léa Justum and I by the british band Scarlett Parade.

A bit more than a year ago, they contacted me saying they liked my graduation film and they’d very much like to have something around that same vibe for their song “White River” which happened to be also a fantasy tale. They had characters and a storyline already pretty much defined so we started boarding, showing the band different versions until an animatic was approved. And then followed 4 months of production madness. Lea did most of the animation all by herself (crazy talented girl she is) Anthony took care of character design, compositing and a great deal of the backgrounds. I did lots of backgrounds too, a bit of design and overall a lot of emailing, file prepping, reference-board-pinning, colorscripting and general keep-the-boat-afloat-ing ;)

Some of our friends helped us on the way so kudos to Augustin Clermont ( compositing ) Christine Shin ( various animations ) Thibaud Petitpas ( explosions FX) Guillaume Degroote ( blood & water FX) Alice Bissonnet ( archers animation ) Max Loriot ( ice FX ) and Tom Law ( magnifiscent cape animaton)

For thoses interested, i’ll try to post artworks later this week :) I hope you may like it, and of course if you do, please share !
