The Solution

We asked the client to provide the basic story for the Cayman Dance Animated Music Video. We then came up with the visual style, art direction, designs, character designs, all artwork, backgrounds and animations for the video, all handcrafted from scratch. We decided to go for a detailed 2D cartoon style, including walking and dancing characters. We designed the characters and this video features 8 characters, so artwork and illustration to design and prepare these and all the backgrounds for animation was a lot of work.

We wanted to make sure everything looked cohesive and we had all characters and scenery approved by the client before the animation start. We communicated regularly with the animated music video client throughout the production. Finally, we put all the scenes together to the complete animation, carefully applied our color adjustments and added many additional improvements. The client loved the music video we made and was very happy with the added extras and finally, we delivered the Animated Music Video to the client for use as the main intro to their website page and social media.

When measuring the success for animated music video content like this one, it is best done by looking at social engagement, for example, the number of views, shares, likes & traffic, here with the goal to provide really great marketing and awareness about DEZ new single ‘Cayman Dance’.
DEZ has published the video on its brand new official website.

Client Testimonial

“We were just putting the finishing touches to the audio recording of “Dance” when I first started looking for a suitable animation to go with the song. As you may have listened to it you will probably realize as we did that the song wouldn’t suit a 3d or what I can only describe as a slick type animation. I was looking for a fresh innocent type of production to go with the song It and wasn’t long before we found Anders. After an initial inquiry and he immediately got back and we swapped some ideas and agreed on a budget. We worked together on storyboard and Anders then took over and worked his magic. The animation came in on time and in the budget. I can only wish him all the best for the future and big thanks.”
