Motion Design for Rio Tigre “Olympiades”

Olympiades is Rio Tigre’s first music video, created by Raphaël Pazoumian, also singer/songwriter for the band. The Music Video, created in 3D with Cinema 4D was shaped around a song composed in between Paris and New York. Inspired by Greek Mythology, the video illustrates the singer’s journey, reinventing the band and his life 3500 miles from home.

The black & white virtual world breaks into pieces that will never touch the ground. The heavy feeling of having to start from scratch when everything you created seems to fall in front of your eyes, your own foundations getting weaker by the seconds are transcribed into this ancient world that breaks to be rebuilt someplace else, like an eternal loop of new beginnings. 

I will make this happen
Broken glass and freedom
I will lift my heart off the ground
Heavy rocks fall without a sound
