Animation Music video is a very old concept in history of music videos. It started with the ‘Illustrated song’ where photographed and colored images were projected on glass slides in sync with the music.
The very first musical video by Max Fischer introduced an animated bouncing ball in ‘Sing along’. Walt Disney’ Fantasia and silly symphonies were very famous animated musical films. Warner brother’s ‘Loony Tunes’ and ‘Merry Melodies’ were based on songs from upcoming musical videos.
The animated musical video ‘Yellow submarine’ based on the music of The Beatles was released in 1968, featuring animated character of Beatles.
In 1985, ‘Take on me’ by A-Ha was the first Animated Music Video created with ‘Roto-scopy’ technique. This video was created drawing over key frames from the footage from the video shoot.
Animation is a very interesting and creative way of making music video. Here any actors or pretty girls or exotic locations are not needed to showcase in music video.
