Desert May Bloom



In late spring 2021, I had the absolute pleasure to make a music video for the Vienna based band, Desert May Bloom's song "Prince Cloud".


In collaboration with the talented 2D animator and Graphic designer Maria Ibba, we shot the stop motion animation in my studio. 

It tells the story of a dreamy prince and his poetic journey to building his castle in the air. 

I was responsible for animating and shooting all the assets. The final video contains 31 uniquely stop motion animated asset sequences.


We later shot the main sequences together with the hand-made puppet that Maria Ibba created out of needle felt, costume made by Mona Heiss.

All the images were shot using the stop motion animation program Dragonframe and processed in Adobe Lightroom.


We composited it all in Adobe After Effects and edited in Premiere Pro.
