Animated Music Video Breakdown Part 2 | World-building


It's essential for characters to resonate with the audience. Our earlier discussions established the importance of grounding characters in reality. Drawing sketches and testing animations ensured that while Mopsy and his companions were expressive and emotive, they still adhered to their true animalistic nature. We blended real-world movements with enough creative liberty to make them enchanting yet relatable.

From the outset, it was imperative for us that our characters remain rooted in realism, amplifying the overall magical realism of the narrative. Despite the enchanting setting, they had to retain their inherent animalistic traits: hopping on all fours and behaving like genuine creatures of nature. We did toy with the idea of them becoming fully anthropomorphic — dancing upright and crooning to the tunes — but in the end, we opted for authenticity. While they didn't mimic human movements, their expressions and emotions were still poignantly portrayed.

This creative path laid for the characters provided a clear blueprint for the environment. Our envisioned magical grove, while enchanting, drew its foundation from reality. It was a heightened reflection of Mopsy’s regular habitat. Every element, though familiar, was imbued with an extra touch of magic: the hues were deeper, the flowers swayed rhythmically with the tunes, and the ambient light pulsated, reflecting shifting moods on the forest's dance floor.
