I meet a lot of starting musicians who can't pay to much for a music-video. But I do want to give em the chance to profile themselves with a booming music-video wich stand out. That's why I make 2D videoclips in Blender. It's easy, its got endless possibilities and it looks fine because of the semi 3D look and 3D motion.
This video is made for, rapper 'Kadee' and beatmaker 'Marsman'. They knew former work from me, and asked me to make a music-video. So they send me this dutch song called 'Hij is een baas' (wich means 'He's a boss'). They told me I could do whatever I liked, so I came up with this.
Because I was confident on what to do, worked on my one and had the whole idea in my head, I didn't made a script, shotlist or storyboard, to win me some time. I quickly sketched-up the project directly from the wrist in Inkscape and exported it as PNG files.
The toughest job was to lip-sync the whole thing. Because I used an animated material for it I couldn't see how it looked in the viewport, so I had to render the mouth to see if it was lip-sync. I started on animating that before i did the rest of the animation because you have to do the worst, first.
The lip-sync is the UV of the plane, animated over the ofsX of the mouth's texture. I used the rotation of a 'circel-with-an-arrow' to controle the mouth. Every 20 degrees of rotation chance the picture.
I did the same thing with the eye's.
I loved working on this project because of the quick progress and freedom I got from the client.
Eventually I did the whole project within 40 hours.
Check out my other Blender projects on www.gewoonnietnormaal.nl, I also make things 3D. There are a few projects upcoming.
