A man’s dark past resurfaces with a mysterious apparition.
Happiness continues my personal take on Magical Realism, making use of visual effects to reveal magical aspects of a somewhat mundane world, more specifically in the context of human interaction.
I was commissioned this work in late 2015, but the artist decided to shoot another video for the single promotion. After the official release, this previously unseen version can now be made public exclusively via my Vimeo channel.
This is an animated music video of Ma-te Lin ,a Taiwan-based electronica group who always voices their songs for animals.
Led by the gifted director/illustrator Little Oil and the animatior Bei Chen, the animation team aimed to make this video as an living story book, in only 3 months. Frame by frame, the whole group - including 9 animators, colouring artists, compositors, and assistance, put so much effort to give the characters Little Oil’s unique style and texture, and then bring them to life.
