Stronger Sex ~ Hassle

Dating in the Digital Age

No More Battle of the sexes

The DC electronic band Stronger Sex came to me in the summer of 2017, asking me to create a music video for one of their upcoming singles, Hassle. To me, the song is a reflection on dating and relationships in the digital age, and the implications of technology’s role in today’s relationships. Given free range, I decided to merge various forms of animation and video to reflect this almost inescapable situation, where machines have become a third member of human relationships. Incorporating 3D and 2D animation, rotoscoping, particle systems, keyframing and frame-by-frame techniques, the challenge was to create a cohesive piece. One of the interesting solutions I found was to keep the camera transitions in a generally rigid 3D cartesian space, limiting its movements to up, down, left, right, forward, and back.
