New music video in development

I'm busy producing a new animated music video for Glasgow-based genre-defying band, Randolph's Leap.

Having previously produced their music video for Counting Sheep (2011), I was recently contacted about making another video for them.
But this time, instead of utilising a mix of live-action & pixelation, this new video will be animated entirely with a hand-made abstract style similar to one of my old audio/visual experiments, Synesthesia (2008).

The production deadline is the end of January, ahead of a launch gig in Edinburgh next month: This is a little tight for my liking (particularly with my real job & a few other projects competing for my time) but it should be an interesting - and hopefully fun - project.

I'll try to post some of the influences & behind-the-scenes stuff over the coming days/weeks, so stayed tuned.
