Hey all,

This is the official music video for Vinter in Hollywoods song Ride like the Wind.
There were some technical difficulties with certain scenes, which led to them being exported to flv format. I hope you can overlook the small quality changes :-)

Music by Vinter In Hollywood. Animation by Oscar Johansson.

Song available on vinterinhollywood.com

Edit: Fixed Spacewolfe name :)

Edit: Frontpaged twice, weekly users and daily first. Thank you so much NG users!



I like everything, but i kinda wish the rock star A. Vinter didnt win. Only because all rock stars win in the end, i mean this is HIS video so i guess he shouldnt need to die. Great animation and everything! def. loved this alot.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the song, but regarding the animation, in some scenes it looked as if the ships were 3d models inserted in the drawn scenario, while in others they seemed to be properly traced and integrated. Maybe it's just an impression.
Also, i think that when animating someone singing, you shouldn't directly show the lip movements unless they're perfectly synchronized with the song (which is admittedly hard to do, isn't it?) A good idea would be to use more extreme angles to show the protagonist playing, which would also render the atmosphere of a concert better.

Regardless the nitpicking, i really enjoyed this!

Really great!

Man, I love seeing stuff like this. The animation was clean, and you've got some really great imagery in there. I especially liked the clean, white buildings on the sunny, seaside backdrop. Very nice.

While the music isn't really my style, and I don't think I'll go out of my way to grab the song, I think it fit well with the video. I also recognized a riff from "Big Gun" by AC/DC in there, and that, admittedly, made me pretty happy.

All around, this is a really great job.

Experiment like mad!

It was so cool how you worked on nearly nothing but stick figures until now. I think it is safe to say that this was great as something truly different to what you are used to. The best part is probably the CGI. It was just so gorgeous to see how it interacted with the regular flash effects. For some reason, the animation reminded me of the stuff by JAZZA, especially like his "Paladin" series or "The Composer". The race with all the different aliens reminded me of the pod race from "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace".
