This project holds contrasted internal emotions that have to be clear visually so it matches the music at all times. As the song is in Arabic, I (Mar) requested translations to understand the lyrics to be able to get deep into each part. Only listening to the song is not enough!
After a meeting with S.AM.I and their producer and listening to their ideas and needs, I presented the first storyboard in an animated format. See the video at increased speed, also in this section.
I introduced the idea of representing the dark part of the song with dark/light hands symbolizing feelings and other characters. Unsurprising at this part of the stage, it took many emails to get to a point where we were all happy with the storyboard details and design.
But this is the most important part of the process and it was well spent!
