Flamingo

Using music band Kero Kero Bonito’s “Flamingo” track, I integrated bilingual kinetic typography (English and Japanese) with the motion illustration. The lead vocalist sings in both Japanese and English.  I tried to convey the “Yuru-Kawa” mood in both the illustration and color scheme shown in the video.

 

The video reached 6600 views on YouTube after a popular Japanese artist posted it on his Twitter account, which resulted in the video being seen and shared by more viewers.
