Music Video: Jonathan Jeremiah – Wildfire

I recently made this music video for Jonathan Jeremiah’s beautiful single Wildfire. The video was released in February and was created by combining some really lovely stop-motion paper animation by Joseph Jensen with my usual collage style animation. My original pitch for the video was a super technicolour sci-fi narrative that unfolded around a volcano spewing weird vibes, but after watching through my previous work Jonathan was really drawn to a black and white animation I made for Luluc many years ago, which was a straight-up homage to Busby Berkeley, so taking that as a starting-point we ended up with this, which I definitely think turned out to be a much better fit to the song than my original volcano idea.
