Higher Lover- Hanami Family Music Video
For the Higher Lover music video I was lead puppet-maker and animator. I was handed the tricky task of recreating the lead singers, Keeley and Wilson, in puppet form. In keeping with the aesthetic of the puppets, we created a soft needle-felted world for them to inhabit. This ‘growing world’ reflected the idea of the ‘growing family’ in the lyrics.
The animation was edited together with footage of the duo as they perform the song throughout the varying stages of pregnancy. The footage was edited to mimic the nostalgic VHS home videos of the 90s.
