As promised, we start posting one of the works we made during the latest months: the artwork for Orpheline's debut album "Spread my Wings", out in Switzerland from the 26th of february 2010.
Orpheline is singer and songwriter, and she grew up between Europe and USA. This first album is produced by BlackAce and contains the single "Shy Boy" (more on Orpheline's website orphelinemusic.com and BlackAce's website www.blackaceshow.biz).
More specificly we did the graphics for the album, the graphics for the promo single, the graphic layout for Orpheline's website, some drawings for the musical video of the french version of "Shy Boy" and we gave a hand during its shooting.
The general idea of the graphic concept starts from Etan Genini (communication and prodution manager of BlackAce) and the photographs are taken by Michael Bonito & Gruppo Diffusione; so, in this case, we mainly had to find the right decorations, composition and graphical solutions and of course we made photo editing and some little photomontage.
For the musical video, shooting and editing by Andrea Todaro, we made digital drawings built on levels to permit animation. At the beginning the animation had to be done by us but then, for ease, it was made by Andrea Todaro too (but we have to thank Yan Hirschbühl, www.yahi.ch, for the AfterEffects lessons!).
During the shooting of the video we also made some backstage picture. We post some of them below, but for the entire set you can visit Pablo's Flickr page.
