I am The One

Music Video

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

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.

This music video is highly focused on the visual with all characters made by paper, mixing patterns and illustrations. The inspiration came from indiginous/brazilian patterns and textures, and the rainforest.  
Each creature and landscape are being made by hand. The craftsmanship work takes long time and hardworking, nevertheless brings charm and magic.
