Anna Ginsburg & Gworge team up to create this live action / animation mix for Loyle Carner's new song "Stars & Shards".
Anna Ginsburg, director: "Loyle Carner 'Stars and Shards' is a mixture of hand drawn animation + live-action. Animation was the perfect medium in which to visualise such rich and humorous lyrical content. Plus Loyle Carner has beautiful freckles, magnetic energy and a lot of talent."
'Motherless Land' is about getting away from it all and deciding to live off the grid. The video peers into the fascinating American teenage subculture of train hoppers. It's a defiant, romantic, crust-punk love story of two young drifters as they search for their next meal and adventure across the country while enduring the challenges of life on the road.
The entire video was shot over 10 days. 7 Days on a 1500 mile road trip across the American West and 3 days on closed sets in the Chicagoland and Indiana area.
This dark enigmatic video is like a free assosciation ride through director Giovanni Ribisi (yes, you know him as an actor) with Siberian perhaps leading to fur coats perhaps leading to a wolf chasing you down in revenge. Perhaps.
My problem with most VR videos — at least, when watching it via a traditional 2D screen — is there's not all that much to look at. That's thankfully not the case in this one, where a troupe of dancers get digitally multiplied and looped to fill as much of a cavernous warehouse as possible.
