New Sad Tax Music Video "These opinions make me Unique"
In classic move on my part I decided I was going to make a quick experimental music video over a couple weekends and then spent a good 2 and half months picking away at it. The song is one of my favourites off this years RPM Challenge album Radical Pastel Miracles, or at least the song that suited the video idea the most. I had wanted to play around with motion tracking and (pretty garbage) facial mapping in after effects. So I painted a bunch of dots on myself and filmed me lipsyncing to the song.
After that I would make random shapes in random colours and track them to different points on my face. I cut the video into thirty second chunks and made 10 or 11 different moving masks. I layered them all together on top of a background of moving geometric shapes, then after I finished off the composition file I then took the camera back out again and handheld filmed the screen with a vaselined lense to add some movement and texture to the final product and edited the handheld shots to create some rhythm and dynamics. And there you go, process! I'm pretty happy with it.
