The Darcys

OFF THE DEEP - Official Lyric Video

After working as part of the design and animation team for their previous video "Look me in the Eyes", I got contacted by the Darcys to direct, design and animate their following lyric video for their single "Off The Deep".

The idea was to convey the cinematic atmosphere that defines their new album "Fear and Loneliness". The video combines a vague nostalgia of Hollywood's glory days with Vegas opulence and westerns. The band and their creative team wanted me to represent a feeling from the '60-'70s Hollywood: rich gold and hues and an overall dusty palette with a grainy effect.

The action and elements on the screen are all based on the symbolism that makes this album unique. We were looking to tell a story of something that happened just a few minutes ago. Leaving a series of clues for the audience to uncover as they watch the video.
