Training Icarus Music Video - Martin Eldon

Postby Charles » Wed Mar 12, 2014 1:34 pm

The guitarist and main music writer for the band Training Icarus decided he wanted to do something special for their debut music video. Something more than simply a lot of shots of the band members. Martin Eldon wanted to create an interesting and cinematic video that incorporated animation.

The result is a video that utilizes rotoscoped along with some free drawn animation. Martin does not have experience or training in either of these techniques which makes the resulting footage all the more impressive. He drew everything over a period of about 5 months using every spare minute he could find.

Congrats on a job well done Martin! Here's the video...
