Created for the new song by Sagi Braitner for his upcoming album and used as the basis for the album cover, I created this music video to resemble the progression of relationship, where you can be broken down but will be built up better yet again.
I began the process by preparing a rough sketch of the story in digital drawings, based on the shots I had in mind for the animation.
Through the use of paintings by the very talented Ashley Ohman,
which I animated in After Effects to tell the story of the hero, losing the love of his life to another man, being broken and building himself back up
Kintsugi is a Japanese art form in which gold is used to glue pieces, embracing the broken and imperfect and the beauty in it.
As is in the picture of V-day by Victor Jorgensen, the moment of true love is as fragile and momentary as lovers and war.
Anubis, the Egyptian god of death and afterlife.
His shadow rises as the gold drains, resembling the revival of the vase.
Guernica by Pablo Picaso.
Almost invisible in the video but lurking behind the vase threatening with chaos.
