Aerial "Sweetheart"

Here's a video that I directed and Produced in 2006 for Aerial. Essentially no budget, just enough to shoot for one day on HD on greenscreen. The song was very sweet, so I thought it would be nice to try and make a more pining story, based on having read about light house keepers and how they had to keep priming and winding the lamps. Also influenced by films such as Eye of the Needle.

This was shot with a Panasonic Varicam, using a reflective floor, composited in After Effects.

An extra benefit to this promo was that I got to hand draw (and learn how to hand draw) cel style animation in the character of the cat and the cat was based on my much loved and often missed childhood pal. He still lives on now in this video.
