DIRECTOR/ANIMATOR: Graeme Maguire
Paul is a dear friend and incredible musician, so I jumped at the chance to make an animated video for one of his new songs. Based around the idea of ‘swimming through the stars’, I used a few different animation techniques (collage, vector, hand drawn etc) and constructed a loose narrative. It’s a slow paced video but the images seem to really harmonise with the music, and anyway the song is so beautiful that it would have made any images look good! I loved playing around with the astrological symbolism. Paul is based in Australia so I had him and his girlfriend Michelle act out the different scenes, film it, and send to me so I could rotoscope the footage.
