About this video

I recently successfully pitched to Warner Music Group to create David Bowie's official lyric video for 'The Man Who Sold The World'. I did a huge amount of research into David Bowie's intended meaning behind his cryptic and evocative lyrics before designing and animating each shot. I set out to create a slightly haunting and unsettling feel combining previously unseen images from a Keith MacMillan shoot at Haddon Hall along with low res footage (from various sources) and many fictional composited scenes. Drawing inspiration from Bowie's Haddon Hall photoshoot, I created rooms, corridors, staircases and many more environments as backdrops for Bowie's own handwritten lyrics. There was something quite moving and slightly haunting about tracing his handwriting from an old coffee stained piece of paper and bringing it to life through animation. Recurring themes such as mysterious dark shadows, playing cards, canvas, damask wallpaper textures and a colour palette inspired by the record sleeve artwork helped give it a distinct visual aesthetic.
