Here is the music video we made for BILLUR’s amazing song, Poisonous Soul. See the part of our The Plus Magazine Interview below for detail information.
"Aside from the song, where did you pull inspiration from for this particular project?"

ArdaYalkin: Actually up to that point we have thrown away a number of projects in progress, because
on the dream in a dream concept, which seems to be a contemporary one but in fact has an antique background. You can easily go back as far as Chuang Tzu. The character we watch on the video is BILLUR herself, we depicted her as a sculpture who sees herself in her dream and that self again sees herself in another intra-frame dream. We don’t want it
to be a dark video, although the sound could have easily pulled one to that end. Therefore, we used minimal hype colors and textures. BILLUR is our old friend of ours, we have made another music video for her in the past. And this one didn’t turn out bad I think, given that it is a zero budget side project.

History of art and masters of classical art are the most important sources for both of us.
As in our other Works, one can read the references we make to art history here. Sculpture-like characters, classical architectural elements, and old stories together with new ones.
"The opening of the music video features a fibrous being- giving us an ethereal feeling. Can you tell us more about this design choice?"

Hande Şekerciler: Actually this was a bit challenging for us until we reached this final feeling, because we got to work with some other conceptual ideas that we thought were brilliant. Than we soon realised that we were not directors of a motion studio with dozens of employees.

Consequently, after several weeks of progress we threw away everything and started from scratch. Eventually, we decided on mini Inception-like concept you experience in the video on hand. We envisaged a dream where Billur’s character, which we modeled like a stone Renaissance sculpture, dreams herself in her dream. For that reason, the atmosphere and the colors are also dreamy and aery. While building this mini universe that our character lives in we set a minimalist perception that fits contemporary aesthetics. I guess you can easily understand what I mean if you take a look at our other works.

Arda Yalkin: In the first scene of the video, we processed Billur’s model twice and with a Fluid Simulation. We tried to symbolize the character falling into a sleep. In order to make the audience feel the sound with the very opening scene, we ripped out one of the figure’s torso and made those pieces move according to the music. In fact, we have adopted those filiform textures just to differentiate this one from the fluid image in the other animation, but it reflected very well the state of falling asleep very well such as closing of consciousness and gradual change of reality.
