ESPERANZA - MUSIC VIDEO
I was thrilled to get the opportunity to direct a music video for the French electro artist Rone on his latest album Room With a View which has the ecology topic at its core.
This music video adopts a subjective point of view and takes us to a journey through time, from the birth of the Earth and Humanity to a futuristic society on the verge of collapse. The video lets us relive the mutations of a world in perpetual evolution, sometimes rich and flourishing, sometimes concrete and arid but always animated by the march of man and his rituals.
Esperanza (hope) is to see a new enlightened humanity be reborn from its past mistakes.
From the technical aspect, the idea here was to have a camera constantly in movement. Therefore we needed an hybrid technics between 3D and 2D to keep a 2D look, which mixes 3D layout and animation with traditional 2D animation.
