The video was made over a period of 5 months and was released on Steven Wilson's 'Drive Home EP'. The 'Raven That Refused To Sing' album contained 6 tracks all based on stories of the supernatural. The video follows the story from the Drive Home and the artwork for the video is based on Hajo Müller's illustrations, from the book included with the album.
After the mysterious disappearance of his partner Lucy one night, Charles is tormented for years and longs for her return. One day he stumbles upon one of her belongings which brings back memories of their past. But as soon as the memories start to return the keepsake is stolen from him by an ominous dark figure. Charles is forced to confront the stranger and the truth about Lucy's disappearance is revealed.
The video was made using two distinct animation techniques, part of the film is made using painted cut-out puppets, animated on a glass multi-plane. The rest of the video is shot using stop motion puppets and sets. Everything in the video was painstakingly covered with torn up newspaper print. In the behind the scenes video, director Jess Cope answers questions about how the film was made.

This animation is commissioned by SFT (The Norwegian Pollution Control Authority) and explains how The Emission Trading Scheme works and how you as an individual can contribute.
Working closely with SFT we wrote the script, narrowing down the subject whilst still maintaining the key elements of the system. For the team, this was a challenging but also very interesting and educational part of the job as there was a significant mix of competence. We also wanted to keep it humorous without jeopardizing the seriousness and importance of the message.
Next step was finding a style to make it both appealing and easy accessible for the audience. The film was not to exceed six minutes so we needed to keep a light and entertaining style where we had room for small humorous elements. We started off drawing on paper, moving on to Illustrator, firstly focusing on characters and then making other elements that were needed to tell the story. The elements were animated in Cinema 4D and finalized in After Effects.
This animation has two versions, one Norwegian and one English. The English version shown here features the actor Terry Carter who to our amusement and admiration was one of the original actors on Battlestar Galactica.
The film is produced prior to COP15, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, and hopefully SFT will inspire other nations to both inform their citizens and to create easy systems for individuals to buy carbon units and to make a difference.

This animation forms the basis of the current Christmas commercial for Ocean Terminal in Leith. The original advert is 20 seconds and has to fit in 16 store logos! In squeezing all this information into such a small amount of time some of the detail is lost. So here's a longer, non-commercial edit.
Of course the great Lotte Reiniger was the primary influence on style for this piece. With time and a budget it would have been great to attempt some of it using real shadow puppets.
Made in after effects with the animation of the characters done in Anime Studio Pro.
The stream of particles coming off the pearl at the end was from a tutorial at video copilot.# vimeo.com/7741770 Uploaded 74.8K Plays 271 Likes 9 Comments
