Music: producer Benjamin Wiessner referred to the style of previous French lithograph posters to generate this multi-layered illustrated video for ex-Pink Floyd musician David Gilmour.
Around 9,000 frames of hand-drawn animation went into producing the quick movie to accompany The Lady in the Yellow Dress, which tells the story of a woman dressed in yellow paying a go to to a jazz club.
“David Gilmour’s imaginative team had seen our preceding brief film and were drawn to the dimensionality and motion in that design, so they asked if we’d deliver a comparable approach to their song,” Wiessner, a producer at Ornana Films, informed Dezeen.

The movie opens on illustrated variety, which is blown away from the lens to reveal a jazz band – drawn with purposefully sketchy and perpetually shifting lines.
Their conversation reveals that the distracted saxophone player is waiting for a lady to arrive at the club they are doing in – primarily based on a dwell-action film shoot Wiessner oversaw, and which provided a reference for the freehand drawings.
Moving to the exterior of the jazz club, a pair of alleycats view a mysterious coated lady enter the club, who reveals herself to be the eponymous lady in the yellow dress.
As she walks previous the club-goers, her dress is reflected in their eyes. A guy sporting a panama hat sits smoking, although the animation itself shifts like liquid or smoke from a single person to an additional.
“The animation was touched by a number of hands to get the layered contours, vibrant colors, and exaggerated character style of outdated French Lithograph posters,” said Wiessner. “We desired to create a moving edition of that seem, as if every frame had all the layers stamped on the web page.”
“We animated with pencil, then contour lines have been gone in excess of with a brush tip marker,” he additional. “We employed gouache to get good existence in the various brushstrokes, then we layered the contours above the paint layer in the compositing phase so that the colours would do interesting factors when they ran with each other.”
The film provides viewers insights into the daydreams of each and every of the club-goers as they picture dancing with the female.
As 1 personal lights a cigarette she is momentarily transformed into a flame on the finish of a matchstick before it is dropped by the guy and he burns himself.
Last but not least the girl moves to the dance floor with the guy in the panama hat, and the movie focuses on her eyes as she seems to be at the sad saxophone player more than his shoulder.
After the dance concludes the woman storms out, with her dress reflected in the band leader’s eyes as she goes.
Gilmour – who was previously a guitarist in progressive rock band Pink Floyd – launched his Rattle That Lock Album on 18 September 2015.
Dezeen previously featured the artist’s Rattle That Lock video, which used animation to re-tell Satan’s fall from heaven.
