video premiere: Young Galaxy – “Blown Minded”

Here’s a gorgeous new animated video for Young Galaxy‘s Shapeshifting standout “Blown Minded,” created by filmmaker Carine Khalifé, who employed some unique techniques with beautiful results. Khalifé says:

“Basically, my technique was to paint on a piece of glass fixed to a light box. I would paint on the glass with oil so that it wouldn’t dry, and I could play with it for hours.
A camera, fixed overhead above the animation table and plugged in my computer, would capture my paintings frame by frame and create the animation using the software Stop Motion Pro (the aardman studio software). This process took place inside a dark room so that there wouldn’t be interference or changing lights on the paint.

The single light source came from beneath the glass, revealing the textures and details of brushes movements. I worked a lot with transparency. The more paint, the darker the image, and therefore the animation becomes about gesture, and the texture of brushstrokes; it’s a very physical, organic process.”
