The Process: Redscale – Unstuck in time. Animated Music Video

###

the fourth animated music video I’ve created.

all starts with the song and the lyrics, paying attention to the theme, tempo and interesting audio moments.

the lyrics:

UNSTUCK IN TIME
used to see everything glued to canvas and locked in a frame
under violet wings, in your thoughts when you sleep and you wake
time’s a treacherous thing, every moment a leaf on your vine
growing hazy and blurred, from the instant you’re crossing the line

losing focus you stand
as the maelstrom awaits
see the distances fade
as you follow the way
when you

follow the way, free yourself from your shackles tonight
when you follow the way, breaking through become unstuck in time
from the start to the end, see the moments like leafs on a vine
from the start all the way, to the violet light
drifting out into space, moving weightless and clear in your sight
every choice that you make, branching out on the canvas of time
as you’re pulling away, feel the veil being drawn from your eyes
now you’re finally free, constellations perfectly aligned

losing focus you stand
as the maelstrom awaits
see the distances fade
as you follow the way

when you follow the way, free yourself from your shackles tonight
when you follow the way, breaking through become unstuck in time
from the start to the end, see the moments like leafs on a vine
from the start all the way, to the violet light

###

then comes the band itself.
the looks, the personality and the vibe.
looking for the cool stuff I could use.

REDSCALE

###

I’ve lost the original notes regarding the input from the band, but I remember that they wanted to show: being stuck/unstuck in the time loop, space, energetic stuff, Kurt Vonnegutian stuff, archival footage of technology and something else.

###

oki doki!

###

based on everything, arranging the world chaos of eternity, overconsumption of coffee in a short burst, listening to the song on a loop for a long time and a soul sacrifice, the story is finally created.
the “internal” script is developed.
(unfortunately, the original “internal” script was also lost in cyberspace).

###

a short version of the “internal” script:
the idea was that we go inside of the time loop/space that consists of time elements.
these elements look like white cubes.
we enter each and see part of history.
and there are 4 black cubes.
we enter each and see the band members.
and then we go outside the time loop.

###

based on the script, the storyboards are developed and presented to the band for approval.
