Follow You, animated music video

This music video was produced for the British band “Selma & The Sound”. The band’s only request was to be portrayed as animal characters, giving us creative freedom. I transformed the band members into animals, with the exception of the lead singer Selma, who appears as a human. The lyrics of the song describe the band’s journey around the world, including destinations such as Mexico, Miami Beach, Tokyo, and Sarajevo (Selma’s hometown), all of which are showcased in the video. The song is titled “Follow You”, and naturally, the band’s fans also follow them on social media. Therefore, throughout the video, hidden within the textures of clouds and trees, you can see photos and status updates that the band has posted on social platforms.

Just like the band, our video traveled the world and was showcased at several international animation film festivals, some of which we had the opportunity to attend. The music video also received two awards: the User’s Choice Award 2013 at Filmskillet California and the Best Animated Music Video 2014 at the Australian Independent Music Awards.
