Cat Velez - 22nd June 2016

Make sure you full-screen this one! Animator and director Gemma Yin Taylor has created some awesome, raw visuals in this high-powered video for Vant's Karma Seeker. 

Combining pattern, text and photography, the video's visual style was influenced by the cut-and-paste aesthetic of homemade music fanzines of the 80's and 90's. The video was created using rostrum camera stop-motion and doesn't rely on digital post-production effects, with each of its 2,700 frames created by hand using collage and illustration techniques.

Designed to have a schizophrenic feel, the performance builds up from a more spacious monochrome look to an ultra-layered, frenzied madness in it's darker scenes.
