THE STAVES: MEXICO

November 10th, 2011

An all in camera animation affair – or is it???
Yes it is. We animated vignettes and sequences to capture The Staves beautifully melancholic song ‘Mexico’. The animation was a mixture of cut out and hand painted sequences brought to life in After Effects. We then used the skills of our projectionist Jack Banks to manipulate the images around the performance by the excellent Staveley sisters. It was a rather tight budget so we animated it ourselves over a rather intense few weeks. Thanks to all who helped us on this.
