We worked directly with Bryan at Chillout Records. He provided the basic idea & script for this video. He asked us to freely design the characters and animate the official music video for the Pale White Guy debut single ‘Live (Best Things In Life Are Free)’, with references to some well known music videos and with ideas for the main character (singer) inspired by well know artists such as Bowie and Prince, and other celebs as inspiration for some of the other characters, including Donald Trump.
Based on the script and ideas for the video, we created a storyboard for the music video. But before this, we created all the character designs and prepared them for animation. A lot of work was put into the character concept and design and we even re-designed several of the already completed and approved characters, because we did not want them to be too similar to well-known celebrities. So we re-designed a few of them again from scratch and changed the clothing and looks as well. Last but not least we animated and directed the whole video based on the script and storyboard, but we directed all the shots and added new additional shots to make the video more interesting.
Behind The Scenes | Work in Progress
This gallery shows some work in progress concept images and behind the scenes images from the Animated Music Video ‘Live’ by the band Pale White Guy. As mentioned some characters didn’t get used in the video, some of which you can see here:
“Anders was a pleasure to work with. From the outset, we agreed a budget, timeframe and detailed storyboard for the project. All was documented as a matter of record for both sides. Anders gave regular updates throughout the creative phase and called out where possible any limitations and a proposed remedy for same. He completed the project on time and within budget and has been supportive in any follow-up and change requests. Anders is a total professional and a talented creative that I would be happy to work with again.”
