In November 2015, I had this great opportunity to work on Sir Elton John's new song ' looking up' from his lastest album "Wonderful Crazy Night".
Many different techniques had been used to make this music video, both 2D stop motion animation and live tracing of Elton John's performance were not only challenging and fun. The combination of the new and traditional animation techniques was a unique approch, which made it a very refreshing piece among the currect music video market.
