Nemes - Everest Isle

Ned Wenlock (aka Oneedo) animated this superb, smokey, silhouetted, western-themed music video for the band Nemes and their track 'Everest Isle.'

The deceptively simple animation was actually achieved through a slow, and perhaps, overly complicated process. Ned goes into detail about the technique on his blog, but basically the characters, ghostly blue set pieces and the smokey silhouetted sets were created as three separate pieces of animation overlapped and timed so that they move slightly differently from one another. This was intended to give a loose, organic feel to the animation, creating the illusion of a live projection on a moving backdrop.
