SAVE ME - Concept, Design, Direction and Animation by Trizz


Months of craft, ideas and styling have gone into our latest self-initiated project, developed and hand made at Trizz, the creative animation studio out of Barcelona known for its artful directing, design and animation on commercials.

“Save Me” is a new music video that touches the soul and essence of a young boys inner creative battles set to heart felt music out of Portland.

The boy protagonist, Rafa, lives in the world of a sensitive, young country kid who is overloaded with imagination and confronted with the possibilities of self-expression and technology. Intentionally the core story is shaped with a naïve simplicity and hints at the places inspiration evolves.

“Save Me” started off as a 5 seconds test project. Trizz director and co-founder Oriol Puig was draw to the musician's song, called him up for a chat that ended up triggering a 4 minute original film to the music.

The design concept of mixed media, with an emphasis on photo realistic rendering was integral to deepening the story mood.

Starting with the boy character, who was modelled and animated in 3d to look like an older technique of hand made claymation. Our team then built the miniature house out of wood and mini tiles and lots of glue and nestled it all within a forest - little plants from the local garden centre. This being the set for capturing real filmed backgrounds. Once the animation was completed, our illustrator then drew and animated the “interactive sky” effects and finally everything was rendered together and composed into the master film.

Visually and musically, this story speaks of the creative process in all of us - and shows that sometimes during the growth of discovery for implementing an idea there are waves of inspiration, frustration, anger and surprise. In the end there is a very positive outcome, in going to a personal edge we also learn something new about ourselves.
