An animated Music Video for U.K. band 'Wah Wah Club', Black Rainbow is a gothic fantasy about the journey through addiction & depression.
This short film draws upon elemental forces as a metaphor to explore mental health, & the ‘Black Rainbow’ of the title is a shadow-like entity that follows the band and cannot be shaken off.
Mixing hand-painted backdrops with computer generated worlds, the sets are built with a puppet theatre aesthetic in mind, with moody futuristic spotlights casting gothic shadows for the Black Rainbow’s overall feeling of technicoloured darkness.
The viewer is taken on an animated journey through multiple dimensions, in a single continuous camera move from start to finish.
Watch out for the abandoned city of Milton Keynes menaced by colossal mutant ivy, experience the band fight oversized carnivorous plants, hitch rides with flying eyeballs & journey to inner & outer space on giant insects.
