Sparks music video

Music video ‘Edith Piaf Said it better than me’ – Sparks. Directed by Joseph Wallace.

Joseph contacted me to help him creating the puppets for the music video (more details here and here). After the puppets were finished I stayed on to animate on the video too. The entire video was made within six weeks. One more animator joined us for some weeks and a hand ful of model makers helpd building all the sets and props.
During the shoot I was also responsible for setting up the sets and lighting for the shots I was animating, to Joseph’s vision. In some cases this also included setting up and programming the moco rig we used for moving shots.

Below a making of featuring Ron & Russell from Sparks visiting Joseph’s studio, as well as some behind the scenes footage.
