Description //

'With a thumpingly retro bassline, snappy 909-styled hats and a chopped and re-pitched vocal which winds its way around the main refrain, 'Mainline' is a positive and worthy reimagining of the 'glory days' of house music. With its feel-good, retro house stylings and assured vocal performance, the new release from Tensnake looks set to be as big as its feline predecessor.'

My role was to come up with a concept for all the animated overlays that worked with the footage - right through from illustration to final animation. Additionally I worked on creating some of the more graphical compositions that can be seen within the piece. The result - as someone put it - is like 'Saved by the Bell' on acid - I'll let you decide.
