"I am the One" - Jarrah Thompson: a paper music video

A stop motion music video about culture, freedom of speech and repression

About this Project

The story takes place in the Amazon forest where a mythological masked bird lives surrounded by music and magic. However, soldiers are around patrolling the area and once they realise the phenomenon, they start chasing this magic creature. Fortunately, he is not alone. There are other mysterious creatures there, musicians playing different instruments in a so picturesque scenario as just the Amazon forest could provide.

The work

This music video will be highly focused on the visual with all characters made by paper, mixing patterns and illustrations.

This idea comes from the Brazilian animation designer Helena Van Kampen, who is developing all characters and scenario in a studio located in Auckland, New Zealand. Each creature and landscape are being made by hand. The craftsmanship work takes long time and hardworking, nevertheless it will bring charm and magic for this project. After creating every detail that will be part of the music video, the characters will be photographed in slightly different positions to produce appearance of movement.

About Jarrah Thompson

Jarrah Thompson is an Australian based songwriter, singer and guitarist. Jarrah blends blues and rock with world flavours and influences from his travels and international tours. Since Jarrah’s entrance on the Melbourne music scene in 2008 with his debut album ‘Stargazer’ is was clear Jarrah was a unique artist with a sound and voice all to his own. Now his passion lies in collaborating and touring in Brazil where the latest release is from, the result is Jarrah Thompson & The Brazilian Percussion Orchestra.

Budget

We need funding to complete sets - 2 sets of 4 are ready, but we still need to make the grand final set with the stage for the little miniature band to play.
Besides the material that we need to continue making the miniatures, almost half of the whole budget goes into renting equipment and the studio. I luckily got some of the equipment borrowed from friends (thank you!) which made possible reduce a lot of the funding required. 
Also we will pay volunteers expenses and food, they are amazing people who are dedicating a lot of time for the project.
And we need to cover the post production costs. There will be quite a lot of post production to replace the green screen, but it will worth it! :)

Clipe em stop motion da música “I Am The One”, de Jarrah Thompson

Um vídeo psicodélico que aborda cultura, liberdade de expressão e repressão

Sobre o projeto

A história acontece na Floresta Amazônica onde um pássaro mitológico vive rodeado de música e mágica. Quando soldados da região descobrem sobre a existência desse pássaro, começam a persegui-lo. Felizmente, o pássaro mágico não está sozinho. Outras misteriosas criaturas vivem lá, músicos que tocam diferentes instrumentos em um cenário pitoresco que só a Amazônia poderia oferecer. 

O trabalho

Este clipe tem foco na arte visual, é composto por personagens feitos de papel, com mistura de texturas e ilustrações.  A ideia é da designer de animação brasileira Helena Van Kampen, quem está desenvolvendo as criaturas e o cenário em um estúdio em Auckland, na Nova Zelândia. Cada peça do vídeo é feita à mão, o que demanda trabalho duro, mas ao mesmo tempo é o que traz charme e mágica ao projeto. Após criar todos os detalhes que farão parte do clipe, os personagens serão fotografados em posições sequenciais para produzir a ideia de movimento.
