Coming up with interesting visuals that don’t take too long to make is always a challenge for me. I would prefer to concentrate on the music.The video was produced by creating a short animation in iClone, a 3D animation programme that comes with some preset movements. You just need to bring in some 3D characters and then apply the movements to them.
I then exported the animation and ran it through various video effects filters in Adobe Premiere Pro to create a 2D effect. I used Threshold to turn the animation into a two-tone black and white video and then added different combinations of other effects such as Invert, Find Edges, Paint Brush, Mosaic, Equalize, Texturize, Emboss and Mirror. I had previously experimented with iClone to do things like opening credits sequences. If you are interested in seen what the animation looks like in 3D, you can check out my work on this page: Animation tests with iClone 3.
