To The Void


For the last 2 months ive been working on a pitch for an experimental music video for my final film at university, ive had this idea before i started university, been awaiting the day when i could pitch, I pitched it today but unfortunately it did not get greenlit.

although its a bummer, i might as well show you guys some highlights of the pitch, the music video is about an Astronauts psychedelic transformation as he falls deeper and deeper into a black hole; desperately trying to escape and not lose himself in the process.

I planned to experiment with many different styles and mediums as he falls deeper into the void, changing his art style, form, shape, etc. I invisioned this music video to accompany a song with psychodelic rock elements, something akin to tame impala.

Even though its a bit of a bummer it wasnt greenlit, im still glad i put my idea out there instead of succumming to laziness and self doubt, hopefully i can make this short sometime in the future.

it looks fucking great. such a goddamn shame it wasnt greenlit, man

Very beautiful, I love to see it become a short.

They really draw me in ! Well done ! Especially the second to the last one.

Is what the dead people meant when they wrote "WE HAVE ASCENDED" and "GONE TO THE OTHER SIDE" and "WAKE ME WHEN I ARRIVE"? Because DAMN IS THAT AIN'T HELLA AWESOMeE!! I especially like the final image with the skeleton that has the sort-of "melted" effect going for him, and you can still tell it's her (the astronaut) through the desperate pose and the spacewalk line.
I love how the kaleidoscope effect in image 3 makes it look like the astronaut is truly falling backwards into space.
And the almost rain-like wisps around the astronaut in image 2 are an absolute goorgie~!

I can't believe they wouldn't greenlight your animation!

Christ Dude, the amount of Skill on Display here is Insane!! Love the Sci-Fi/Horror Aesthetic you've got going on here. Nice Work!
