  • Jagwar Ma – Man I need

    Client: Marathon Artists Production Studio: Supervixen

    Good friend, Toby Pedersen and Supervixen teamed up again to bring you the new music video by Australia’s own Jagwar Ma.

    This music video was an exploration of �straight ahead� animation, which is painting the animation frame by frame, from beginning till end. There was no planning involved, the process was linear.
    There is a dynamic energy and life to animation done this way, and it is often referred to by animators as animating by �stream of consciousness�.

    The character that appears through the clip, whether he is represented as a silhouetted figure, or a collection of shapes, is conducting a journey that will take him through many different landscapes and will essentially fend for himself against all our brains threw at him.

The commercials spawned a whole series of fan made art and continues to this day.

In this case, the block is defined by it’s childlike simplicity, and the city is the amazing creation that can be made if we work together?
