SEVYN STREETER FT. BOB - SHOULDA BEEN THERE
When I hear "Shoulda Been There" I envision an animated video that takes the audience on an impossible color filled trip.
The idea is to compliment the upbeat of the song in a fun and stylized fashion. Animation allows us to play with typography (lyrics) and create impossible camera moves and morphs (flying, dancing and any type of location).
The perspective will be mostly from inside the performers imagination. Like a day dream. We'll be illustrating this vignettes showing silhouettes then breaking the wall to explore the world inside.
We can have Sevyn be our main talent and showcase her performing while animated and we could hire models to dance along to the music. I think it would be beautiful to watch Sevyn sing with an illustrated view of what her imagination looks like from the inside.
Below are some references to give you can idea of what we'll be seeing.
PROOF OF CONCEPT: silhouetteS and animation
The artwork will be created by Artist Maryam Gaber who will lead a small group of animators. Below are some of her portraits she's done.
THE SETTING: SOMEWHERE DREAMY
The setting would be our imagination. Doesn't have to be Hawaii but it will feel very much like a postcard from our imagination.
