This music video was essentially an experiment to animate my own illustrations through the use of a mixture of hand-drawn and digital techniques. The idea of the battle came from my own interpretation of the Mae Shi's use of rhythm and lyrics. Seeing as this is my first animated music video I sought out inspiration from the Bayeux Tapestry, Kuniyoshi's war hero prints, as well as classic battle scenes from films such as 'Throne of Blood' and 'Chimes at Midnight'.
