Emanuele Kabu – “Battle Lines” by The Helio Sequence Music Video

August 11, 2015 by Tim Rabjohns | 0 comments

Another visually mind boggling music video from Emanuele Kabu this week – “Battle Lines”
by The Helio Sequence.  You May remember that we featured another amazing animated video by him for The Helio Sequence called Upward Mobility in May. The one thing I really like about a lot of the music videos we feature on dotmogo is that they do not have big budgets but the level of creativity is so high – really squeezing as much visual stimulation as they can from the resources they have. ( I have no idea what the budget for this one is – but hopefully you know what I mean…) Continue reading “Emanuele Kabu – “Battle Lines” by The Helio Sequence Music Video” »

Frédéric Bonpapa – Light Motif – Animated Film

Inspired by the ingenious repetitive rhythms of Steve Reich’s ‘Music for 18 Musicians’, director Frédéric Bonpapa was first motivated to make this film 12 years ago. Frédéric has been working in VFX in Paris for over 10 years, but moved to London last year.

Fuelled by Frédéric’s VFX skills (working in SoftImage, Mental Ray and Nuke) and a love for music, he has created this wonderful piece of minimal experimental storytelling, which he describes as “a synaesthetic experience”. We spoke to the director to find out the intention and the process behind the work… Continue reading “Frédéric Bonpapa – Light Motif – Animated Film” »

Jim Howells – Phoria Music Video

July 4, 2014 by Tim Rabjohns | 0 comments

I thought there was something very mesmerising about this strict black white and red music video by Jim Howells.  Although this was an ultra low/no budget project there is something about the combination of the Radiohead-like Phoria and the harsh white light moving across the wolves that raised my pulse when I was watching it.
