Music Video Created Entirely in Watercolour Paint – Never Gonna Be Alone – Released
Creative collective Bare Golly Films are pleased to announce the release of the music video to accompany five time Grammy-winning artist Jacob Collier’s latest single ‘Never Gonna Be Alone’ (feat. Lizzy McAlpine & John Mayer), the first single since the award-winning album Djesse Vol. 3.
‘Never Gonna Be Alone’ comprises a short film that explores the thematic nuances of the song, journeying through layers of love, loss and longing painstakingly realised in vibrant, hand-crafted, watercolour animation.
Utilising over 1200 individual paintings, complex in detail and colour, the music video features four extended continuous sequences of fluid frame-by-frame animation. It was created over 2 months by a team of nine, all working remotely.
It’s the second piece for Jacob Collier by Shan Christopher Ogilvie and Ewa Smyk. The duo previously directed a lyric video for the same song, also created in watercolour paint, and featuring the bird characters who now appear in the main narrative.
