DANA GAVANSKI - I TALK TO THE WIND, 5min., Italy, Animation/Music Video
Directed by Gaia Alari
A traditional hand drawn frame per frame animated music video for dana Gavanski's cover of I talk to the wind (original by King Crimson). Using a purely analog technique, the director and animator (one woman crew), wanted to recreate a 70s vibe that could match the voice of the artist, hence the pastel pink to accompany a black and white palette, the film like effect (entirely hand drawn) and the dissolving passages. The lyrics has a surreal element to it, that the director chose to underline through the use of nature as a symbol for the tidy chaos given by the juxtaposition of inside/outside and here/there. The whole video wants to reproduce the back-and-forth movement of the wind and it is, by all means, a loop.
