Animated music video

the lyrics:

We’re riding to the west
Got trouble on my back
My head is on a test
I can hear it crack

Devil rides beside me
We sing the poor-mans blues
He said I’ll make you rich son
Cause you’ve got nothin to loose

Sliding through the doorway
Spinnin’ all around
I like these kinds of trips
That make me tunned to the ground

We’re riding for the overdose of sin

It is a simple overdose of sin
Everything from outside slides within
When you look it closely it’s a fuckin knot
If you get to taste it you’ll know it’s not

So we took our package
The load is in
Devils and me need more
We’re hungry for more sin

We’re riding for the overdose of sin.

input from the band: wild and crazy and sick! ram from hell! whores, blood and fights! viking in pink! devils hounds, space shrooms, 3 titted whores and all the beauty of the west!

###

based on everything, after brainstorming, overconsumption of coffee, listening to the song on the loop for 666 times and blood sacrifice, the story is finally created, paying attention to character’s motivations, the 3-act structure etc.
the “internal” script is developed.

“viking in pink” immediately gave me the idea of Power Rangers

and The Monster Squad

the_monster_squad_moGaU1.0-1024x683 The Process: Boundary - Overdose of Sin. Animated music video.

therefore all 5 band members should have different colours and looks.

i love to add female hands and/or eyes in one way or another to all my projects, if it’s appropriate.
especially hands with long fingers and nails.
i guess that’s my “tarantino’s feet”.
