AGAUGEFOR 'Blackball' Music Video

Agaugefor were a great Sydney based alternative rock band who built up quite a solid following and put out some fantastic releases before calling it a day a few years ago.
This clip was our first ever foray into music videos and is a combination of hand drawn imagery and rotoscoped live footage of the band. We shot all the footage ourselves and the rotoscoping was done completely by hand using the first of many wacom tablets that would grace our desks in the years to come. The story line of the clip was loosely based around the song’s lyrics but intentionally left open to interpretation.
We entered the clip in a lot of competitions and festivals where it was very well received screening alongside videos by the Mess Hall, Eskimo Joe and Thirsty Merc as well as appearing on national TV.

Here’s a link to our blog for more of a look at some of the original illustrations and behind the scenes imagery:
