Project Summary

WONDERboom is South Africa's longest-running rock band and is responsible for a long list of hits which have firmly been cemented as South African classics. In celebration of their 20 year anniversary, they wanted to have an animated music video created for the first single from their new album. For 'Great Escape' we scripted an epic action story around a couple escaping from an alien planet. We worked with countless illustrations to create a stop-motion style for the story which is set in outer space. Expect some intergalactic surfing, lots of explosions and outer space martial art battles. The single is available for download on iTunes and further insight into the making of the video, including interviews with the band, can be found in the behind-the-scenes-video above. Massive thank you to Eleanor Barkes for assisting with production, and to Josh Prinsloo and Ashley Wedlake for playing the roles of the tragic heroes.
