If you haven’t seen it yet, you must watch this beautiful animation for The Beatles Rock Band, written and directed by Pete Candeland of Gorillaz music video fame and produced at Passion Pictures here in London. The styles between the first and second half are clearly distinctive yet manage too blend together beautifully, starting off in traditional 2D animation and flowing into a full three-dimensional tripped out musical extravaganza.
Storyboards and style for 2D was created by Robert Valley, who has an amazing collection of work on his Flickr account. Illustrations for the little musical characters in the second half were done by South African illustrator Ree Treweek, one third of the Blackheart Gang, who shot too fame in 2006 with The Tale of How.
With this much talent flying around, how could they go wrong?
