Follow Mitski Deep into “A Pearl”
Commissioned by Spotify, this music video for “A Pearl” by Mitski (aka singer-songwriter Mitski Miyawaki), combines 3D and 2D animation into a gripping single-shot dream directed by Saad Moosajee and Art Camp with cel animation by Danae Gosset.
From Art Camp: “This music video was initially created on the computer using 3D animation software. After the digital version was finalized, all 1,480 frames were individually printed using ink jet printers.
“Once an image was printed, it was then painted, drawn, and illustrated on top of using traditional animation techniques. Lastly, the newly illustrated frames were scanned back into the computer and sequenced into the final film.”
