Watch a cool sci-fi style video for a band called "Tenderstar." The animation was created by a fellow blogger buddie you may know named Joshua Westbury AKA Sci-Fi Gene.
Here's how Joshua, the creator of the video describes it:
For me the best part of making this video was working with the songwriter and lead singer who were both willing to share what the song meant to them. We started with abstract visualizations of the different sounds which also set the tone for the video, then added more concepts based on the verses and the overall theme. The songwriter describes "2007" as "a song about getting your head together over the course of a year" and we came up with the elevator journey as a way of representing this.
