Unreleased music video for Haleek Maul
Producer: Berta Lozano
Director: Saskia Dixie
Animation: Catherine Chapman
I made 3D scans of the shoot location in Epping Forest for digital
environment shots with a virtual camera. We experimented a lot with how
the rigged face model should look and how to animate the lip sync. I
manually created a facial UV map from photographs of the artist in
Photoshop and placed it on the model in Blender.
The head model was a customised MakeHuman mesh. For the head 'explosion', I created seams in the geometry by paintbrush selection and animated each piece individually for a uniquely detailed and organic look.
Transitions created in After Effects.
The narrative of the video is of the artist's internal battle with identity or alter ego.
