THE JOB ROLE :
Making the clip began with a creative assembly with guys from Harafica in their homeland near the city of Uherske Hradiste in the Czech Republic. With this idea came Zuzana Bahulova, executive producer of the project (film Node - Zlin) , who started everything and put us together. Involving members of the group directly in the production of the clip was pleasant variety, so I was able to draw inspiration directly "on the scene".
We prepared several "creative attractions" of non-musical type for boys from Harafica. We spent one evening with creating color effects, smutching watercolor on paper, ink droping into the aquarium or action painting watercolors. We gained quite wide database of textures and video effects for stylization of the clip. Then I enjoyed the atmosphere and inspiration for the implementation clip in the hills and forests of Chriby and the creative marathon could begin. I used the materials for creating animated heaven or deafult backround graphics, on which I also built in the music clip.
The basis is always the story, screenplay. For the story I chose the classic tracking lyrics, which themselves indicate a plot and we loosely followed them. The main character Gypsy Andrei starts out on a journey from Slovacko to Chriby forests and still meets his friends who finally end up in a small village pub. They are all musicians, so they have so much fun. Andrei has bad luck so he doesn´t have lack of delicate situations. His girlfriend – Erzika says: "This Misfortune smiles at you and you to her."
Loosely, based on character pre-concepts created by Zuzana Bahulova, I started the next phase - creating the four actors, 3D puppets. Characters should have acted kindly and cartoon.
I didn´t have much time for "breathing life" into the characters,, so finally it's a simplified animation shortcut ala naive cartoon puppet. The creation of the storyboard preceded relization
In animation, I tried to insert a pleasant roadmovie / summer atmosphere of various real locations. The viewer can see the landscape of the White Carpathians, he can meet
From design of the story, creating scenarios through the creative and character animation, It was a though job that took me over two months of intense work.Complex realization
