BO is a short story about the sun, the sea and the human. The animation is a music video, produced for the album YEARLING of the neo psychedelic band Whereswilder, from Athens. It was in production for six months using various digital animation techniques and was created by four graduates that have formed a collective called OUT.THERE.
The animation is structured on the melody and rhythm of the song, while the narrative follows the lyrics. The hero’s journey takes place between changing atmospheres as the geographical location remains the same, highlighting the physical changes and psychedelic atmosphere that forms the narration. Exploring a different perspective of the Greek summer, the island becomes the point of reference for the story to be told. The sea, the sunlight and the main character alternated roles creating interactive relationships between them. Each scene has its own colour identity as moods and track melodies change in pace and rhythm.
