Created using a blend of CGI and traditional hand-drawn animation, ‘Mitski: A Pearl’ offers an interpretive visualization of the heightened feelings one goes through in the late stages of a relationship. This music video was initially modeled, colored, lit, and animated digitally using several types of 3D animation software. After the digital version was finalized, all 1,480 frames of the video were then individually printed using ink jet printers. The images were then overpainted and drawn on using traditional animation techniques. Finally, the newly illustrated frames were scanned back into the computer, color corrected and sequenced into the final film.
