The official "Old Love" music video for Joe Hertler and The Rainbow Seekers

Directed and Animated by Paul Zito
Written by Joe Hertler and Paul Zito
Produced by Matt Burek and Paul Zito
Digital backgrounds and concept art by Jonathan Zito
Stop-motion fabrication by Paul Zito, assisted by Matt Burek
Pre-production consultation by Jordan Serra

The medium is a hybrid of cel animation, stop-motion, and after effects motion graphics. First, I animated the characters frame by frame in photoshop and a few elements in AE. Then each frame of motion was cut out into colored card stock and re-animated onto a 5 layered multiplane rig with full paper backgrounds. Then I took that footage and added cel animated highlights and elements throughout.
The last 30 seconds or so of the music video are completely digital with a blend of photoshop animation and AE motion/camera work. The backgrounds were created by my brother, Jonathan. If you're looking for a more in depth look, I'll be posting bts photos and vids later this week on my instagram (@pthomasz)
