Paperface – A bigger man

Client: Paperface / Daydream records
A music video about anyone who ever wanted to be a Rockstar.
“A Bigger Man” is a music video from the London-based indie-rock band Paperface. For this project I was asked to recreate a similar aesthetic adopting miniatures inspired by my previous short-movie “Missing”. The script that I got from the band, told the story of a man’s daily life, who used to dream to become a rockstar during his childhood. Such dreams were set in outdoor stages, with large crowds and potentially rich of figurative details. Recreating such script into visuals adopting miniatures, resulted to be technically difficult further than a costly procedure. Inspired by  John Clang 2012 “Being Together” project, my solution was to project 2D animation on the miniatures. The result was a dreamlike animation that well-suited the script story as well as  the idea of the author, furthermore to optimize the production resources.
