Videoclip by Milos Fric for song by Lenka Dusilova — Biale konie
Hi, I’d like to share my first animation. It took me about a year, because I was completely new to Blender, so it was a big learning experience. It’s a videoclip for the Biale konie song by czech singer Lenka Dusilova. Rendered in cycles. Rendering took 5 months.
The “Białe konie” song is the introduction track of the latest album by Czech singer Lenka Dusilova called Reka (River in English) My interviews with Lenka were an important part of the creative process, they helped me achieve a deeper understanding of the album “River”. I realised the song is part of a bigger narrative. The album River is an LP of songs that flow into each other
In the album the listener travels through time, space, bloodstream, through structure and their own past. The River cleanses layers of ballast, ruffles the riverbed, so that everything can settle again and one can perceive in new perspectives. The river calls into dark depths, because it is in such depths where locked away and forgotten treasures lie. Such treasures are being unlocked by Lenka in her dives into the River. The album’s central theme is finding one’s own past in the depths of the family river and cleansing its bed for future generations.
Water has therefore become the agent of all processes. First it offers the viewer a glimpse under the rough surface of the stones which it eventually completely dissolves and reforges. The videoclip is a visual narrative inviting the viewer to allow themselves to be carried by the flow of the River.
