Dead Birds | Sami Fitz [birds]

We were invited to create a music video for Dead Birds a song from musician and friend Sami Fitz.

Sami gave us an open brief on the project. On hearing the haunting lyrics and vocal we decided to create a piece that was about nature, death and adaptation.

It's always daunting working with an open brief, the mind races about the possibilities. We decided to approach it like a moving sketchbook. Creating small experiments in animation and seeing where it led. The imagery was choreographed but the animation technique was more experimental, allowing for happy accidents. The video followed on from our last piece for Sami - Wide Open Sky.
