Joaquin Sabina

Lyric video

Joaquín Sabina is a song writer especially well known for his lyric content. He can mix poetry with sarcasm in a subtle and unique way. From the beginning I knew that I must be very respectful with the pace and legibility of the titles, since lyrics are the most important part of Sabina’s music. Editorial poster design and conceptual illustration were my main starting points to work with.
I wanted to let happy accidents enter the game, so I decided to use Stop Motion to achieve organic and sometimes imperfect visuals. My good friend and trust collaborator Luis Llácer helped me with this.
I framed all the compositions with enough white room to layout the text in digital. To merge the words with the images, I printed all the titles and scrapped them a little bit. Then I scanned all and brought them back to After Effects.
