Pre-Production

We wanted to tell a story using the strange timings of the song, and utilize the crazy creatures some of the bandmates are known to doodle. We had them do as many drawings as they could manage, and began scanning them into the computer. We then cut the images into separate jointed layers in Photoshop for easier importing and animating.

Production

We filmed the live action footage using my production partner Russell Sanders as the actor. We had him stand in front of the green screen, then played the music as he acted out the choreographed moves by moving in place.

Post Production

Once the footage was filmed I started the long process of building the 3D world in After Effects. Each monster was colored in Photoshop and then rigged in After Effects with various points of articulation. Other random elements were drawn out by myself as needed.
