I directed a music video for Bess Rogers and it’s out today!
All the animations were hand-built out of pipe cleaners, photographed as stills, and inserted into the video through the magic of After Effects.
A ton of people helped out on this, but three brilliant guys devoted huge amounts of time and effort. Logan Strobel was the After Effects Frog Wizard, Hunter Hill produced and edited, and Hua Liu flew to L.A. just to D.P. this. So thanks to those guys and thanks to the rest of the crew (assistant director James Leffler, make-up savant Mariah McGinnis, wardrobe master Lan Chu, and Scott Dow & Nick Muller in grip & electric). You guys are champions.
(Oh, and happy birthday, Bess!)
I really enjoy being digitally linked to “the” Frog Wizard.
Had a lot of fun working on this music video. Incidentally I will never look at a pipe cleaner the same way, ever again.
