ODESZA “Light Of Day (feat. Ólafur Arnalds)” Music Video by Balázs Simon

Merging motion capture, live-action, and 3D animation with painterly algorithmic 2D rendering, Blinkink director Balázs Simon conjures an impressionist and surprisingly emotional journey for American electronic music duo ODESZA.

Balázs Simon: “I was fascinated by the idea of this very old character who gets rejuvenated in a sense during his struggle to experience something magical. This film is about focusing on the values of life, and not giving in to the pressures we face each day.

“I wanted to harness the immersive qualities of 3D animation, but also make it more painterly than usual. The result is a mixture of hand-painted backgrounds, in-camera effects, and tens of thousands of algorithmic brush strokes in each frame.

“The character’s movement was recorded with motion capture and real-life elements were shot to complement the 3D environment.”
