I directed and animated this stop-motion music video for Sivu in 2017, the song Lonesome is taken from his album Sweet Sweet Silent.  

After chatting with Sivu and his management about vague story-line directions - and using a previous film I had made as a starting point, JLSNCKLC - this animation was mostly improvised, starting with a drawing of what the puppet might look like (have a look below, and also some photos of the animation in progress in my studio in Bethnal Green, East London).  The floating ocean particles are a combination of stop-motion animated leaves and some magical help from Lawrence Rowell.
