Short Film: DESERTED EYES, 3min., Greece, Animation

Dc8f0a6e70 poster

Deserted Eyes is a song, animated music video and WebGL project by the Greek multi-instrumentalist Oh. (Olivia Hadjiioannou).

The song takes the listener beyond the vicissitudes of relationship and love – beyond the criteria of reciprocity and togetherness.

It casts a light on the individual within the relationship rather then the relationship itself. Expressing how one’s state of mind — if left unchecked and allowed to settle too long in dark and despondent moods —eventually wears away at the soul of the other — casting an immutable spell unwittingly upon the one you love.

The video was filmed during the late summer of 2017 in Greece where a tragic oil spill occurred causing an ecological disaster in the waters of the Saronikos and irreparable damage to the interpersonal relationships of the coastal community.

During post-production, we could not ignore the correlation that tragic event had to the song and so incorporated the visuals into the final clips.

The music video was created with traditional hand-drawn, 2D, 3D and motion graphics. The project also includes an innovative online WebGL experience embedding YouTube video, music players and animated elements to create a 3D web experiences using three,js.

7ae16d2ebc poster

AMOR TI VIETA, taken from act II of the Italian opera Fedora. This piece was first performed back in 1898 in Milan, Italy. Fedora is an opera in three acts by Umberto Giordano to an Italian libretto by Arturo Colautti, based on the play Fédora by Victorien Sardou.

This music video is a stop motion animation portraying the story of this beautiful opera. KAJART and Shahrad Fredotti decided to focus on the most dramatic part of the story, portraying it in a very notable and artistic manner. In this scene Ipanov (the singer) declares his love for Fedora. He confesses to Fedora that it was he who had killed her husband, Count Vladimir.
