3D Animation In "From Afar" Music Clip

 
From Afar is an alternative metal band from Rzeszów (Poland). We were asked to make a music video to one of their songs - Jacob’s Ladder, partly inspired by the movie of the same title. 
 
Music video, which is a combination of computer animation, digital effects and live action, was made totally from scratch. The project contained elements such as: screenplay (written in cooperation with members of From Afar), character and environment design, animation, video shooting and post-production.

Character 3D model

 

The character was modeled completely from scratch, being just a cube at the very beginning of the process. Since completion of that stage, it was time to paint various details on his skin such as scratches, stains, scars and a large wound on the stomach. Satisfied with his look, we created a bones system and bring him to life by using nonlinear animation system.
 
 

 

Scarecrow

 
One of the most characteristic elements on the scene was a scarecrow with a waving piece of clothing. It’s an example of cloth simulation with additional wind force.
 
 

 

Environment design

 
The imagination created the vision of a post-apocalyptic fiction inspired by From Afar’s music. The animation environment was a result of combining it with real elements from the location we had chosen for shooting the video.
