Director Onil Kotian, approached Babekühl to help with post production on the music video ‘Hold Your Nerve’, by indie band, Boy and Bear. Our brief was simple and open – to help incorporate some colour throughout the monochromatic music video.
We started by referencing the look and colours of the album art, creating an animated version of abstract bubbles in water. Our idea was to animate this over the top of the existing performance with an organic painterly feel. Seeming to appear both reactive to the melody and beat, and flourishing more and more intensely as the track builds to its peak. Ending as a swirling swarm of colourful ether that weaves from instrument to instrument.
