OK this animated music video for Cruisr’s “All Over” by Carboni Studio is insane. First off it was animated in Photoshop and finished in After Effects to keep the hand crafted feel running through out. That’s right animated in Photoshop, Comped in After Effects. Now you watch it you’ll notice that each scene has to blend into the next as it ends. Not an easy task, and something that requires a lot of pre visualization and very talented animators to pull off.
Now, how many movies can you name here? The entire video is a montage of movie characters and scenes. I stopped counting after 20.
This is a great behind the scenes video, because the guy that made it actually talks about what they did and how they did it. Most of the time the Behind the Scenes stuff is just a bunch of clips that show the build and shoot without much insight or detail. This goes a bit further, letting you know things like inspiration, actual gear used, and process. Below the Behind the Scenes, is the final music video they produced.
Over the last few years the broadcast advertising for VW has been really strong playing off pop culture icons like Star Wars. Two days ago VW dropped an ad based on the classic 1980’s music video “Take on Me” by A-Ha. Once again VW nails it with a solid commercial balanced with just the right amount of humor. Both the new VW spot and the original A-Ha video are below.
The animated video below is the music video for the song “One and Three Four”, by Yoshiharu Abe. The video was directed by Masanobu HIraoka, and it’s just a mindblowing hypnotic visual treat. It really is a great piece of animation work that is timed so well to the music.
