This distinctly dark and moody video depicts the struggle between burdened soul and the shadowy forces pursuing him. A world of crooked buildings and gnarly trees are set against a backdrop that spins and swirls like a living painting. The intensity of the aggressively melodic music demanded powerful imagery and dynamic editing. While the video depicts a dark tale of inner-demons, there is also a glimmer of hope. A variety of techniques were interwoven to create the unique look of this piece, including sketchy pen and ink treatments, painterly textures, character stop-motion, 3D camera maneuvers and (post) embellishments.
