Way back in 2007, I made a short music video as an entry to the Nokia “You Make It Reel Video Competition”. The organizers gave us a 1 minute track made by the Greyskulls and we had to shoot a music video using the Nokia 93i. Since I have no people skills to deal with real live actors, I settled on drawing and animating my entry; something no one was crazy or patient enough to do. I, thankfully, ended up winning the competition.
Here are some behind the scenes pictures of how tedious the entire process was. I don’t think I ever got around to posting these pictures because I was embarrassed with the crudeness of my set-up. But time has a way of making it all seem fun in hindsight.
The cool thing was, this video led to a short television commercial for RC Cola. For this TVC, I had help with the animation from my friend, Ivan Reverente.
