Making a music video - Wire & Flashing Lights.

Posted on at

Here is my full process illustrated:


I had an idea so I started to search a music that could fit to it. I listen to Professor Kliq's music and decided to make a music video about one of his track.

I edited it to make it a little shorter.

 I started the preparation by building all steps of growing white blocks with cardboard

Then I made a nice little suit to my puppet

I prepared the and lighted the black set

 And started to animate!


I had a good coach!

So I could animate some days more than 10 seconds!


Sometimes It could pass few weeks without animating. Starting back was hard.

Animating with hang over is not a good idea. That kind of day I could only make one frame...


Animating more and more and one day, after two months this is the end!

But I felt something was wrong. So I decided to make a retake and reshoot the end.


Then I had to make a few post production

And some cleaning

I couldn't see dust during the shooting. But It appeared a lot!! So I had to clean them one by one....


When everything was clean I could start the grading in good condition.

And then it's done!


Before to put it online, I wanted the agreement from Professor Kliq, so I sent him the video


And after few unfinnishable days, I had an answer from him, I was very happy


So I was proud to show it to Partizan producers


And I had the luck to get a very nice award


And the begenning of a friendship!
