This is the second video I directed for Dublin band Sickboy. There are a few ideas behind this video; two of the band members, Colm and Brian are identical twin brothers - like carbon copies of each other, which got me interested in the idea of copying and reproduction of images. I was also interested in the aesthetic of the fliers and self promotional material being produced by unsigned bands, often black and white photocopies showing a picture of the band and a date etc. Also the idea of animating 'silent' photocopies (of a face smushed up against the glass of a photocopier) to make it appear as though the photocopies are singing appealed to me. So I copied colm's face in a photocopier and moved it around as the light from the copier passed by to create distortions - we made hundreds of photocopies with all the main mouth/facial shapes needed for lip sync. Then I shot them playing on whitescreen, photocopied the frames etc - put the mouth shapes in order, photographed them, composited it all together in ae and synced it up Read Less
