Bright Eyes “Mariana Trench” Music Video by Art Camp
Starting with 3D animation and archival footage as reference, NYC studio Art Camp merges the talents of 18 artists hunkered down in insolation to create 2,200 hand-illustrated ink paintings for “Mariana Trench” by US indie rockers Bright Eyes.
From Art Camp: “The production of the video started at the beginning of quarantine and finished as people came back out of their homes and took to the streets together.
“In 18 different bedrooms across the world, listening to Bright Eyes, keeping each other company, we got the chance to collaborate on a story about embracing and celebrating change.
“The animation is composed of 2,200 hand-illustrated ink paintings based on original 3D animation and archival footage. We hope it makes you excited to imagine that everything could be new.”
