Aka A Music Video in 3 Steps:
1. Re-created Middle-Earth on a kitchen tabletop… (hello – every backyard plant we have, hello – fallen moss covered branches from the park across the road, hello – turntable, hello – flashing bicycle lights, hello – wonky lampshades and plastic toys.)
2. Made some custom animations (Quartz composer, After Effects), and projected these onto Middle-Earth, using software to manipulate the projections (VDMX, Madmapper, quartz composer).
3. Recorded the results (Canon 7D, various lenses), and edited together (Premiere).
And yes, animated, directed and edited by myself in whirlwindy short amount of time.
